English-speaking Calvinists are generally familiar with the acronym TULIP, which is a handy way of remembering the principal doctrines of Reformed Christianity:

Total depravity
Unconditional election
Limited atonement
Irresistible grace
Perseverance of the saints

However, given that some might see TULIP as old hat — and in the interest of encouraging bio-diversity — today’s challenge is to come up with another floral acronym that expresses the truths of Reformed Christianity. I posed this to some friends and colleagues some time ago, and now it’s your turn. For example:
Perseverance of the saints
Authority of scripture
Noetic effects of the fall
Salvation in Jesus Christ
Yes to God’s grace
