Calvin Conference: February 20-21

Next weekend, several churches from the Lansing, Michigan area will be hosting a conference in celebration of the 500th anniversary of John Calvin's birth.

The conference is called Magnifying God: The Legacy of John Calvin in the 21st Century and will be held at my church, University Reformed Church (new website coming very soon!) in East Lansing, across the street from Michigan State University.

The conference begins Friday, February 20 at 7:30 pm and runs until 5:00pm the next day.

The keynote speaker is Collin Hansen, editor-at-large for Christianity Today and author of Young, Restless, and Reformed: A Journalist's Journey With the New Calvinists. I'm excited to hear Collin's three lectures on "Calvin's Kin" (and am grateful that he let me rip off his book title for my blog).

I will be speaking Saturday morning on "All Men Are Like Grass: The Life of John Calvin." Three local pastors will be conducting workshops in the afternoon. The event will finish with a panel discussion.

You can get more information about the conference and register at Early registration has been extended, so you can still register for $25, which includes a copy of Collin's book, or for $20 if you already have the book. I hope to see some of you next Friday night.

Looking forward it. Hopefully East Lansing lets this Wolverine from Ann Arbor in.

Looks like a great conference. I wish I could make it but Nashville is a bit far from East Lansing. Will the audio be posted online?
