God Save the Queen


And not only the Queen, but may the Lord extend salvation to the entirety of Great Britain. Toward that end, I covet your prayers for my journey to England this week in which I will visit the London School of Theology and All Souls Church. On Saturday, I am scheduled to visit Oxford to retrace the steps of Peter Martyr Vermigli and John Henry Newman, two Oxonians from church history whom I am studying in my doctoral thesis. I have already downloaded Thomas Cranmer’s last words which I hope to recite at Saint Mary’s Church (where Cranmer spoke them). You can follow the trip on Twitter @chriscastaldo.
