Blackout + Calvin

I’m in Narrabeen and there has been no power for almost 3 hours so far. I went and grabbed some candles from Woolies in Mona Vale (they had power) and have been reading Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion by candle light. I can picture Calvin having originally written them by candle light.

I have been reading the section on faith (III, ii) and was struck by one of the footnotes that said:

While for Plato men sinned out of ignorance, for Calvin men were ignorant out of sin.”

I’m sure I could come up with some cool metaphor that related to the blackout I’m in but I can’t be bothered. You can add one in the comments I’d you wish.

BTW, iPhones rock.
