Calvin, Calvin, Wherefore Art Thou, Calvin?

I kinda wish Calvin wasn't dead, cause his theology is intoxicating. If he were single and alive...

On the other hand, his politics were atrocious. Maybe not...

France was amazingly awsome.

“…wherever you cast your eyes, there is no spot in the universe wherein you cannot discern at least some sparks of his glory. You cannot in one glance survey this most vast and beautiful system of the universe, in its wide expanse, without being completely overwhelmed by the boundless force of its brightness.” (Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion 52, Vol 1) He's no CS Lewis, but certainly more straightforward (and poetic!) than MANY theologians and philosophers.

In other news, Clint Black is the man: "Love isn't someplace that we fall, it's something that we do."

The Calvin/Barth paper is just starting to come into existence, so I won't be turning it in for a while... going with the later due-date option.
