Lord God, make us so reflect thy perfect love; that, with thy deacon Nicholas Ferrar and his household, we may rule ourselves according to thy Word, and serve thee with our whole heart; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Nicholas Ferrar founded the community at Little Gidding, Cambridgeshire in 1626 (puritans accused it of being a protestant convent) and restored the church there. He had George Herbert's poems published, and Little Gidding itself is a theme of one of TS Eliot's Four Quartets. pic.twitter.com/3ccOBeXFzv
