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.

VirtueOnline - News - News - OXFORD: Sudden Departure of Richard Turnbull from Wycliffe Hall - MORE UPDATES

Please forgive the late notice here but apparently back in May of this year the Reverend Richard Turnbull, the Principal of Wycliffe Hall, an Evangelical and Reformed Anglican school of theology at the University of Oxford, took sudden sick leave and afterwards resigned his post. The speculation, according to the following article at VirtueOnline, is that Turnbull has been forced to resign.

Addendum:  Apparently one of the things that got Turnbull in trouble was trying to emulate Albert Mohler's cleaning house when he oustered the feminists and liberals at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.  One so-called "Evangelical" feminist, Elaine Storkey, was forced out of Wycliffe Hall because of her redefining of God as an "it" or a "she".  One of her objections to Scripture is that it consistently addresses God in anthropomorphic masculine terms and by masculine pronouns and titles.  Jesus was a man Himself so I fail to see how denying the masculine roles of Jesus and the twelve male apostles somehow supports modernist feminism posing as "Evangelical" theology?  Jesus does not pray to His "mother" in heaven but to His "Father" in heaven.  (Matthew 6:9.  Cf. Matthew 5:16, 45, 48; 6:1, 7:11, et. al.)  If a radical feminist like Elaine Storkey is an Evangelical, so is the devil.
