Geneva is in the French speaking part of Switzerland and so we were really glad that Justina is fluent because the rest of us were quite awful at it (although, Justina told me I had a really good accent of a French person trying to speak English). This is when I wish I'd paid attention in Madam Hickox's French class in high school. Oh well.
Our main goal was to see the Reformation sights because as all of you versed in Reformed theology know, Geneva is the home of the Swiss Reformation and Monsieur Jean Cauvin (or as we all know him, John Calvin). I was in awe of the Reformation Wall, which is a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be and quite breathtaking.
Here's me in front of three of the four Reformers (L-R Farel, Calvin, Beza, & Knox, who got cut off. Which is sad since he's the reason there's a Presbyterian church):
Next we went to St. Pierre's Cathedral where Calvin preached:
I was quite impressed with the Museum. There were relics of letters that Calvin wrote, an original copy of the Institutes, and a plethora of information on all of the Reformers. It was interesting to see just how much the Reformation really affected evangelization and the Gospel. Having studied Calvin in seminary and being a five pointer myself, I was in a bit of heaven all day long. Not to mention, it made it better getting to go with friends!
