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.

Equality Bill in the United Kingdom Could Be a Forewarning to the United States with Similar Laws Going into Effect Here

Click on the title above to see the article at EV News. Americans should be on the alert for the erosion of their freedom of religion and freedom of speech in light of new hate crime legislation making it illegal to use hate speech against homosexuals. Under new legislation it could become illegal to preach that homosexuality is a sin. One need only reflect back to the incident in Canada where a Christian minister in Canada was fined and threatened with jail time for writing a letter to a newspaper quoting Scripture against the sin of homosexual activity. (See Romans 1:24, 26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9; Leviticus 18:22, 20:13).
