“Exiles and Pilgrims: What John Calvin might offer an Age of Social Displacement” - Joshua Chestnut- 2017

October 20, 2017

A lecture given by Joshua Chestnut at Southborough L'Abri on September 30, 2017. For more information, visit www.labri.org/mass and for more L'Abri lectures, visit the L'Abri Ideas Library.

Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel has described the twentieth century as "the age of the refugee, the stateless and the wanderer" and though he belongs to a vastly different time than our own the protestant reformer John Calvin, himself a religious refugee, has some unexpected insights for us and our day.  In this lecture we will consider Calvin's teaching and practice of showing hospitality to the refugee as well as the inherently practical nature of Christian spirituality.
