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.

Rebuilding Anglicanism: A Way Forward

While I do not agree with using the "revised" services suggested in this article or using the sacraments as an evangelistic tool, the rest of this article is spot on.  I think baptizing or performing marriages for the unconverted leads them to the false conclusion that they are in right standing with God.  It needs to be made clear that a "Christian" baptism and a "Christian" marriage requires active membership in the local congregation and a study of God's Word.
