The Loss of “Common” Prayer  

In its proposed report to General Convention, the SCLM has suggested four approaches to revising the Prayer Book, each of which has some merits and disadvantages. But they all include the assumption that we should continue to have a Book of Common Prayer. I would like to raise a question before the question: what is common prayer, and is a Book of Common Prayer right for our future, or should something else be our “unifying myth”?

The End is Near(ish)

You might be hearing Jesus say that, with the Second Coming, he’s going to mop up the floor with those who don’t conform. But I invite you to listen more carefully.
