February Calvin Events in Europe

Readers may want to check the following:

Televised worship for the Calvin year 2009

ZDF will televise worship from the former Great Church in Emden (John a Lasco Library) for the opening of the Calvin jubilee year 2009. This will make clear the importance of the Geneva Reformer for Protestantism in Germany. After first reflections on the form and content, the EKD television representative, Pastor Charlotte Magin, wants the televised worship to take account of Jean Calvin’s concept of community order. Here the diaconate will also play an important role.

Place: Emden, John a Lasco Library. For information, see here.
