David Calvin and Why Calvin Still Matters

On a more personal note, David Calvin (our second son) was born more than one month ago (July 31st).  He eats a lot and sleeps (of course he cries too!).

As most of you know, David Calvin Rata was born 500 years (to the month) after Jean Calvin and that is the reason for his middle name (NO – he is NOT named for Calvin Klein :))!

My wife has done an excellent job of posting all kinds of great pictures with our family.  Take a look when you have some time.

So – why did we name him Calvin?  Is it because Calvin once mattered?

[“There can be no serious doubt that Calvin once mattered. Any honest historian of any point of view and of any religious conviction would agree that Calvin was one of the most important people in the history of western civilization.”]

YES he was named after Calvin because of who Calvin was.  But he is also named Calvin because Calvin Still Matters!

Please pray with us that David Calvin will be a talented poet like David, and a man with a passion for the glory of God (like Jean Calvin)! AMEN!
