The 500th anniversary of John Calvin’s birth (Quincentenary) will be celebrated around the world next year through a variety of conferences and symposiums. Calvin College in Grand Rapids Michigan (my alma mater) has provided a helpful listing of a great many of them.
One not listed there, “Rediscovering Calvin, Resources for Renewal Today”, will be held next June at Emmanuel College, Toronto, and will broaden its exploration of Calvin’s thought beyond theology and ministry to music and the arts. Another event, The Calvin Quincetenary taking place in Geneva in July, includes a tour of sites such as Noyon (Calvin’s birthplace), Orleans, Reims, Strasborg, and Bern, a cruise on Lake Geneva, a sermon in Calvin’s church, and a conference with an impressive array of international scholars and pastors (e.g. Henri Blocher, Bruce McCormack, Carl Trueman).
