The Church Divinity School of the Pacific offers a forum on “Imagining a new prayer book” as part of its Alumni Convocation Symposium, October 8, from 3-5 p.m., local time.
The Rev. Dr. Ruth Meyers, presenter, is the current dean of academic affairs, and a long-time teacher of liturgy and liturgics. She served on the Standing Commission for Liturgy and Music from 2008 – 2015, and as chair from 2009 – 2015.
The seminary website describes the event:
The 2015 General Convention called for a plan for revision of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer that will “utilize the riches of our Church’s liturgical, cultural, racial, generational, linguistic, gender and ethnic diversity in order to share common worship.” Join us to explore the possibilities and challenges for Prayer Book revision. What should change? What should be added? What should we keep? We’ll consider how a new prayer book can enable the Episcopal Church to gather and form faithful disciples in the 21st century, and how our common worship can express and shape our participation in the mission of God.
