In Geneva

We’re sitting here in the CICG conference with all the Calvinites awaiting the start of the International Calvin and His Influence Conference in Geneva. Our room looks like a United Nations set up with Smart tables and chairs, headsets for translation and a large panel table on the podium up front. There are people from many different parts of the world including a good representation of Presbyterians from the United States.
We’ll be live blogging here from the conference once it begins. We– being Columbia Theological Seminary students and faculty in attendance.
