Today, 27 February, is, of course, the feast day of George Herbert, priest, poet, who died this day in 1633.
King of glory, King of peace,
who called your servant George Herbert
from the pursuit of worldly honours
to be a priest in the temple of his God and King:
grant us also the grace to offer ourselves
with singleness of heart in humble obedience to your service;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

3MinuteTheology has been a pleasant sidewater, if not backwater, in the flow of the Anglican world. Until today:
If this is you, visiting from Thinking Anglicans, or Cartoon Church, welcome. And let me know what you’re thinking.
Today, a single, solitary visitor to Three Minute Theology, and probably an inadvertent one at that: they were searching for “cracked pot Yvonne Warren”, and Google threw up this post half-way down its second page of results. Whoever you are, you must be keen on finding out about the cracked pot to plough through all those results before you came to me! Thank you.
I hope that the relative silence means that we are all keeping the holy habits of Ash Wednesday.
May God bless you, and give you grace to keep a holy Lent.
Apologies for any disruption you may have experienced in 3minutetheologian this afternoon or evening. A slight PHP problem, which was expertly solved by my hosts Machine Networks Ltd.
