Note - My recently sainted grandmother (101 years!) always told me some of our ancestors were French Protestant 'Huguenot' refugees who fled from France to Essex, England in the 17th century (a story which history backs up, btw). As I get older I become more and more interested in their story. I offer this promotion of Francophone Lutheran resources in honour of my French ancestors, who suffered so much at the hands of France's Roman Catholic authorities.

Pr. Henderson,

We are working to add French hymns to the Time Out podcast. We have a Canadian francophone, Pr. St-Onge in Houston, who will be recording after he comes off of vacation.

In the meantime you can enjoy us in English:

Thanks Dan for the 'heads-up'.
Those podcasts will help to improve my French, I'm sure!


I'll add a link to Time Out here at the old manse.

Dear brothers in Christ

People interested in Lutheran confessional resources in French might also want to check the blog of St Paul Lutheran Church in Poitou (Western France):

We will be posting weekly podcasts of our sermons soon!

Many thanks, Thomas & welcome to the 'old manse'.
I'll be in touch.
Blessings on your ministry at St Paul's!

Mark,

It was nice to discover your blog. Really well done!

I guess we'll be in touch later.

God's blessings on your ministry.

Weren't (aren't) the Huguenots Calvinist?

Pr Mark Henderson said...

Hi anonymous,

Certainly the Huguenots were more in the Reformed camp than the Lutheran one theologically. Being Francophones would have opened them up to Calvin's influence, but I think it best to view the original Huguenots as people who simply wanted to be evangelical Christians rather than Romanists or sectarians.
Rather than stick a lable on them and thinking we have accounted for them, why not find out directly what they believed? Check out the French Confession of Faith of 1559 here http://64.33.81.65/reformed/frconf.htm.

There's some good evangelical teaching there, even if it's not quite the Formula of Concord :0)
