An Introduction to the Book of Common Prayer
Did you know that the Episcopal Church in the US has used its own prayer book since 1789? The one we use now is actually the book’s fourth revision and was published in 1979.
But what do you really know about The Book of Common Prayer – other than the dirty pages that we open to each Sunday? I’ll bet you know exactly what I’m talking about – but in case you don’t, look at the photo!
How we can you use the BCP in your daily life? Did you know that there is a collection of prayers and thanksgivings for various situations? What does the BCP teach about our beliefs? And what makes it “common”?
For the next few weeks, beginning January 9, Fr. Mike will guide us through this book that we have come to know and love. Come discover the BCP beyond the dirty pages.
This class is for EVERYONE! Whether you are a cradle Episcopalian, a long time Episcopalian, new to the Episcopal Church, thinking about joining the Episcopal Church, or just wanting to learn more about the Book of Common Prayer.
This class will meet each Sunday at 9:15 a.m., in Grace Hall, starting this Sunday, January 9, 2022.
Fr. Mike has also set up a Google Classroom and he will post upcoming lessons, interesting articles etc. This is also a way for you to ask questions, and have group discussions with others in the group.
