Thank God for France

Did you know that at one point in the Reformation nearly 50% of the French were Reformed? And three of the four statues of the Reformation Wall were French: John Calvin, William Farel, and Theodore Beza. Most of John Calvin's seminary students were French. It was a Frenchman, Jacques Lefevre d'Etaples, who greatly influenced Luther on his view of justification.
Now a ministry called Huguenot heritage is holding a conference on the history of the Reformation in France in hopes of sparking a new Reformation. Gather your family around and watch this moving lesson of church history. You will marvel.
