Bible Study

"The Book of Common Prayer"

Wednesdays, 10am – 11:30am via Zoom

The group's current project is to look at the liturgical traditions of the church as found in the “Book of Common Prayer.” We will be using the earliest 1662 English version (still the official prayer book of the Church of England) as well as the 1928 and 1979 Episcopal editions. This will let us explore the evolution of both liturgical forms and our language and will provide insight to how traditions both change and stay constant.

Welcome to a Life of Faith in the Episcopal Church
