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.

EV News :: Church Society - Safeguarding the CofE's Evangelical Identity

Since Archbishop Rowan Williams will be stepping down the Evangelicals in the Church of England are praying for the appointment of a new archbishop who will be sympathetic to the Reformed and Evangelical wing of the Anglican Communion.  Here is an excerpt from the article:

Furthermore, the council will also be writing to Lord Luce, as many other organisations are surely doing, outlining the qualities Church Society considers important for the new archbishop: a man who both meets the qualifications set out in Titus 1 and has considerable experience of local parish ministry.

Finally, members of the council have been in dialogue behind the scenes trying to protect and safeguard the rights of colleges like Wycliffe, Ridley and Oak Hill to determine for themselves the content of their ministerial training in line with their evangelical convictions and subscription to the Anglican formularies.

Church Society, both through the patronage work of the Trust and in other ways, is active in the work of promoting and safeguarding evangelical ministry within the Church of England, not just on the issues that get the headlines, but on all the issues that matter to the church's identity and future.
