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.

Global South Meeting in Singapore Sounds the Warning

Click on Global South for the full story.

I am pointing out in particular one part of the statement that stands out in my mind as the most important:

16. In contrast, we continue to grieve over the life of The Episcopal Church USA (TEC) and the Anglican Church of Canada and all those churches that have rejected the Way of the Lord as expressed in Holy Scripture. The recent action of TEC in the election and intended consecration of Mary Glasspool, a partnered lesbian, as a bishop in Los Angeles, has demonstrated, yet again, a total disregard for the mind of the Communion. These churches continue in their defiance as they set themselves on a course that contradicts the plain teaching of the Holy Scriptures on matters so fundamental that they affect the very salvation of those involved. Such actions violate the integrity of the Gospel, the Communion and our Christian witness to the rest of the world. In the face of this we dare not remain silent and must respond with appropriate action.
Really, the TEC has demonstrated a total disregard for the mind of God as it is revealed in the very words of Scripture. If there is to be any redemption for the Anglican Communion it will be a return to the Holy Scriptures as the final Word of God in all matters of doctrine, morality, ethics, and fellowship. The best we who are Reformed, Evangelical and Anglican can do is to break fellowship with those who refuse to repent of their immorality and their unbelief.

The peace of God be with you!
