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:

Memorial Day Weekend 2012: From Ken Howes

A Memorial for 2012 from Ken Howes, friend of Reformational and Lutheran thought.  Here are some memorials to Ken's predecessors on Memorial Day Weekend 2012.
          "My paternal great-great grandfathers: Arthur B. Fuller, chaplain, 19th Massachusetts, killed at Fredericksburg; James R. Howes, 10th Massachusetts, wounded at Fair Oaks; Arthur Cain, wounded at Spotsylvania Court House; and Rufus Dawes, commander, 6th Wisconsin. My great-uncle, Kenneth Eliot Fuller, killed in action in France, 1918. Members of our family have served since 1620, and fought in every war since 1704. Dr. Samuel Howes treated the wounded after the Deerfield Massacre; other family members participated in the taking of Louisbourg; William Dawes rode on the Midnight Ride; Timothy Fuller was a chaplain for a Massachusetts regiment in the Revolution; my father, Timothy Howes, served in the Navy in the South Atlantic in WW2; I served in the Army, 1971-80; my brother Larry served in the Air Force 1973-77."
Semper Fi to all who have served, stood and died for Constitutional life, protections and freedoms heretofore, in history, unknown.
