Opening the Book of Common Prayer

Formation Opportunity Beginning March 6th
Sunday mornings at 9 a.m.
For Anglicans throughout the world the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) is not just the source that directs our common prayers for Sundays, holy days, and the transitions of life.  It is the book, used together with the Bible, that shapes our identity as followers of Jesus.  As the saying goes, praying shapes believing. What we pray when we gather at church or as individuals, teaches us how to live our particular way of being Christians in the world.  Beginning on March 6th we will explore the various prayers, rites, and liturgies contained in the BCP and how they have formed five centuries of Anglicans.  As we near holy week we will pay particular attention to the Proper Liturgies for Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter.  Hopefully, this will allow us to walk with greater intentionality through the holiest days of our church year.  Edith Woodling, Will Drosos, and Buddy Crawford will teach this class.  You may want to bring your own prayer book to take notes.
