Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F. Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

7 December 521 A.D. Columba Born? Irish Apostle to Scotland

7 December 521 A.D.  Columba Born? Irish Apostle to Scotland
Saint Columba (521 to )
Irish Church
Irish apostle to Scotland.
Birth of Saint Columba, apostle to Scotland. His Irish name, "Colum Cille" means "dove of the church." He may have been partly responsible for the battle of C?l-drebene. Legend says he established his mission at Iona in penance. At any rate, he was instrumental in establishing many churches and converting pagan Scotland.
