Merry Christmas, 2016

December 25, 2016

‘Grant, O merciful God, that HE Who was born this day to be the Saviour of the world, as He is the Author of our divine birth, so may be Himself the Bestower of our immortality; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.’

Almighty God, who hast given us thy only-begotten Son to take our nature upon him, and at this time to be born of a pure Virgin: grant that we, being regenerate, and made thy children by adoption and grace, may daily be renewed by thy Holy Spirit. Through the same our Lord, Jesus Christ. Who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit ever, one God, world without end.

  1. Merry Christmas Robert 🙂

  2. Btw, though I am somewhat a Low Church Anglican, I do like times of using something of the Anglican liturgy, especially at Advent and Christmas. And I always love and use the Book of Common Prayer, with the Anglican Thirty-Nine Articles!

    *Btw too, let me recommend WH Griffith Thomas’s grand book: The Principles Of Theology, An Introduction To The Thirty-Nine Articles, (first edition 1930) ; but it has gone into reprint many times (not sure if it is still in reprint today?) but it can be found used. Again, just a fine book on Evangelical Anglicanism (547 pages with Index & References).

    [“Undogmatic religion is, strictly speaking, a contradiction in terms. Dogma is not
    indeed like Faith, the living spirit of religion; but it is at least the skeleton of all
    embodied religion, the framework, however transitory, of the physical organization of its life. Faith that is real will out. Faith that is uttered in dogma, like life that is born, may perish; but it is the medium of a manifested spiritual life, mortal like flesh and blood, but like them with a sanctity of its own” (W. A. Curtis,
    op. cit., p. 3)]
