Our Book of Common Prayer was approved by the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 1976 for proposed use with final approval in 1979. The Book is one of the longest serving Prayer Books in the History of the American Church; it is also the 4th Prayer Book since the American Revolution.
Changing Prayer Books is difficult as our people get used to the beautiful words and rhythm of the various liturgies, yet the Prayer Book has always been so much more than a guide to worship. In the Episcopal Church, it is a living testimonial to what it means to be a part of the Episcopal community.
During the season of Lent, I will offer a facilitated discussion on how to use our Book of Common Prayer for personal devotion. As we are and will be limited for in-person worship, the use of our Prayer Book in our home prayer life might be a Lenten learning for this quite unusual year.
