Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost preparation

September 25, 2011 is the fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost. The collects, though similar, have very different meanings. Interesting. An intended key to Universalism, perhaps.

Also, today (September 19) is the twelfth anniversary of my ordination.

Free Church Book of Common Prayer (1929)

Collect:

Almighty and everlasting God, give unto us the increase of faith, hope, and charity; and, that we may obtain that which thou dost promise, make us to love that which thou dost command; though Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Epistle: Gal. v. 16-24.
Gospel: Luke xvii, 11-19.

A book of prayer for the church and the home (Universalist, 1866)

Almighty and everlasting God, give unto us the increase of faith, hope, and charity; and may we not only obtain that which thou dost promise, but also love that which thou dost command, though Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Epistle: 1 Cor. iii. 16.
Gospel: St. Luke xvii. 11
