On Tuesday, August 13, at 7PM in the Restoration sanctuary, Scott Buckhout will be hosting a workshop on the new Book of Common Prayer (i.e. that new red book in the pews).
If you have been to Restoration on a Sunday, you know we are a church that uses a set liturgy in worship. For Anglicans, the liturgy of the church comes from the Book of Common Prayer, which was first compiled and created by Thomas Cranmer in 1549.
Cranmer tried to put all prayers, psalms, liturgy that a church would need in one book in a common language so that everyone would be able to worship together both in private devotions through the week and in Sunday worship services. Many of you are familiar with this topic and have been using the “Praying Through the Year” booklet that Restoration created in 2017.
On Tuesday, we will give an overview of the new Book of Common Prayer: what’s in it and how to use it. We’ll close our time together by praying through the Evening Prayer service in the Daily Office.
Our hope is that during our short time together on Tuesday, you will see how helpful and beautiful the Book of Common Prayer can be, and you’ll be eager to buy your own copy and use it in your own prayer life. Email Scott with any questions.
We hope to see you on Tuesday at 7pm!
