Collect

Prayer of the Congregants at the Penitential Rite

Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, maker of all things, judge of all men: we acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we, from time to time, have most grievously committed, by thought, word, and deed, against thy divine majesty, provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us. We do earnestly repent, and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings: the remembrance of them is grievous unto us, the burden of them is intolerable. Have mercy, have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; for thy son our Lord Jesus Christ's sake, forgive us all that is past; and grant that we may ever hereafter serve and please thee in newness of life, to the honor and glory of thy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Reblog: Jeremy Erickson

Tomorrow being the Day of Silence, I won't be posting ('cause that's so different from my normal haphazard schedule of when-I-think-of-something postings ...); however, I would like to plug this post from Jeremy Erickson, one of the authors on Spiritual Friendship, which (if memory serves) was founded in part by Ron Belgau, who also helped Justin Lee found the Gay Christian Network. It is a good and needful piece on Christian attitudes toward homophobic bullying.
