ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Heritage Anglican Network: An Ashless Ash Wednesday for Anglicans

I used the 1662 BCP for MP, the Litany, and the Commination on Ash Wednesday. (no ashes, of course) It was a biblical and reformed beginning to Lent. Did anyone else have a similar use? Michael Northup

I also read the collect for Ash Wednesday. I didn't detect anything in the collect that would contradict the sovereignty of God. In fact, the collect emphasizes both repentance and the fact that nothing we do is possible apart from God's monergistic grace provided beforehand.
