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.

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.
