The 13 November is the day when the Church of England remembers, and gives thanks to God for, the life and ministry of Charles Simeon. This prayer (collect) is used:
Hear our prayer, O Lord, that we who give thanks this day for the work of grace in the life of your servant Charles Simeon, may ourselves be given his love of souls, and his zeal for the proclamation of your word: through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Charles Simeon is one of my ‘spiritual heroes’ and, in the year 2000, I had an article about Simeon printed in the ‘Churchman’ international theological journal asking: Are the Priorities and Concerns of Charles Simeon Relevant for Today?
I’m sure you will find it an interesting, encouraging, challenging and relevant read.
