The Collect

O LORD, who for our sake didst fast forty days and forty nights; Give us grace to use such abstinence, that, our flesh being subdued to the Spirit, we may ever obey thy godly motions in righteousness, and true holiness, to thy honour and glory, who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

Glenn Davies Is the New Archbishop of Sydney

The Anglican Church League website announces that the election of Glenn Davies as the new Archbishop of Sydney is confirmed.

You can view the story here:  Glenn Davies elected Archbishop.  My minister friend, David Knox, who is the son of the late D. Broughton Knox, tells me that Glenn Davies earned his Ph.D. in theology at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia many years ago.  Davies, it would appear, was a good choice for the office of archbishop.  I am assuming that he is a five point Calvinist as was his predecessor, Dr. Peter Jennings.

The Sydney Diocese is one of the few Anglican dioceses in the world that is low church, Evangelical, and Reformed or Calvinist.  Although they do not nail things down as tightly as I would prefer, I can say with confidence that this is probably the most conservative, Evangelical, and Calvinist Anglican diocese in the world.  Perhaps Dr. R. Scott Clark and others in the Presbyterian world need to be more aware of this fact?  That is particularly so when he is allegedly a professor of the history of theology.  In short, it is possible to be both an Anglican and a thoroughgoing Calvinist.
