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.

My Ordination with the Reformed Episcopal Church

Many of you may be unaware of the fact that I was for a brief time ordained as a deacon with the Reformed Episcopal Church, which has now united with the Anglo-Catholic denomination known as the Anglican Church in North America.

I resigned from the REC after it became apparent to me that the denomination was no longer Protestant and Reformed (Calvinist) but had for all practical purposes sold out to Tractarianism.

To qualify as Protestant a congregation must affirm the five solas of the English and Continental Reformation movement.  It is true that Lutherans of that time affirmed the five solas but that may or may not be the case today.
