New Book of Common Prayer

One of the glories of the Anglican tradition has been the use of a Book of Common Prayer.  Christians in the United States, England, Australia, India, and elsewhere could know that they were following (generally) the same liturgy and saying the same prayers.  This unity has fractured over the years, sometimes for good reasons (to modernize language to make it more understandable) and sometimes for bad (to downplay doctrines like sin that made some people uncomfortable).   The ACNA has been working for about ten years to develop a Book of Common Prayer, and it has now been published.  Join us on Sunday July 21 at 9:10 a.m. (between the two liturgies) to discuss the new book as we evaluate whether the authors have fulfilled their mandate to update the language (eliminating the “thee’s” and “thou’s”) while retaining the core theological principles of orthodox Christianity.
