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.

The Tragedy of 1662

The Tragedy of 1662

Thank you for linking to the article on the Tragedy of 1662. I had to review a lot of that history when I wrote my doctoral dissertation on the [Calvinist} theological roots of the rule of law ideal--much of which got hashed out in Britain by opponents of the Stewart claims to absolute power.

Hi, Kepha... I got the original link from Robin Jordan over at the Anglicans Ablaze blog. I have some serious disagreements with Robin. He seems to take an eclectic approach to theology. I take a more confessional approach and I believe systematic and dogmatic theology is absolutely essential.
