This week's design for worship is the unfolding of God's plan of salvation for mankind. As we gain comprehension and realize the benefits of the price and extent of so great a salvation, we are to practice Christ-like humility and love to those around us.

Collect for the Wednesday before Easter:

The original form of the following Collect was proposed for inclusion in the American Prayer Book, we have not found any versions which have adopted it.

Merciful Father, protect us from presuming to sin because of the sin of another, either by example or provocation: and when we are led or provoked to offend Your Divine Majesty, lead us to repent with Peter rather than to despair with Judas, so that by a godly sorrow and a lively faith, we may obtain remission of our sins; only through the merits of Your Son, Christ our Lord.
