There was a preacher called Spurgy

Listening to JI Packer on the Puritans he mentioned this amusing little ditty:

There once was a preacher named Spurgy

Who frowned on our liturgy.

But his sermons were fine,

so I preached them as mine,

as did the rest of the clergy

  1. Ah, I have, I assume, misqouted this as:

    There once was a preacher called Spurgy
    Who didn’t much care for liturgy.
    I’ve preached one or two of his sermons
    and so have most of the clergy.
