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.

Re: Ecumenical Liberalism and Religious Hatred

Dear Sarah,

I do not wish to participate in ecumenical liberalism or any idea that all religions lead to God.  Furthermore, it is ironic that the pastor was condemned for exercising his religion freedom while the Islamic fundamentalists are praised and glorified in a monument to their "martyrdom" at the site of ground zero. 

If you really represent peace, then stand against the hate crime committed against the United States on September 11, 2001 and stand against the  mosque being built there.  This response is being posted to my blog to document my objection to this solicitation.

Sincerely yours,


Reasonable Christian Blog Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost; Answer. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen. 1662 Book of Common Prayer

Hi Charlie,  This is Zondervan author, Sarah Cunningham. A few author and blogger friends and I are putting together a blog campaign to try to spread goodwill via blogs on the anniversary of September 11th (tomorrow). This is to intentionally contrast the hate being spread by some in the name of Jesus. The FBI has issued a nationwide warning for hate crimes suspected on this day. (More info at the link below...)  This page offers links to build an easy post if you can help us. http://www.sarahcunningham.org/uncategorized/join-the-campaign-of-goodwill  Please pass it on. Tension is a great opportunity to speak grace and peace.  Thanks for bringing voice to the faith in our generation.:) Drop me a line anytime!

It seems the real agenda here is not to speak peace into tension but to hawk her book. Stupid me. I fell right into that one:)
