one God, now and forever.

Collect of the Day, Ash Wednesday, BAS p. 281
Almighty and everlasting God, you despise nothing you have made and
forgive the sins of all who are penitent. Create and make in us new and
contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our
brokenness, may obtain of you , the God of all mercy, perfect remission and
forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one, God, for ever and ever.

From the Psalm This Week …
“…The law of the Lord is perfect and revives the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure and gives wisdom to the innocent.
The statutes of the Lord are just and rejoice the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is clear and gives light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is clean and endures for ever;
the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, more than much fine gold…”
Psalm 19:7-10a (BAS)
