Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

The Continuum: A Layman's Guide to the Thirty-NIne Articles

The Continuum: A Layman's Guide to the Thirty-Nine Articles

Although I do not endorse Mr. Hart and his semi-pelagian views or his high church Anglo-Catholicism, I thought this article by Larry Wells and Bobby Hart was worthy of consideration. You'll find an interesting discussion by Larry discussing seven possible interpretations of Christ's descent into hell, although I have seen combinations of these views at times. Donald Bloesch speculates that there will be a second chance for unrepentant sinners in hell and links that view with Christ's descent into hell to preach to the spirits imprisoned there. However, Bloesch's view is very close to universalism, which shouldn't surprise anyone since Bloesch is a Barthian and not a true Evangelical. At any rate, thanks to Jack Miller for pointing out the article. Isn't it odd they call their blog, The Continuum? Isn't that the place where that character from Star Trek, The Next Generation used to "exist"? His name was Que I believe. Queue?
