I posted last night's notes and handouts. Sorry, it is a bit out of order. The notes are further down this blog.
Next week, Associate Rector Ann Willms will talk about the Episcopal Church, the Book of Common Prayer, Anglican spirituality, and just about anything else you want to talk about as time permits.
Your homework assignment for next week:
Please find a Book of Common Prayer, and read the Preface (pgs. 9-11) and "Concerning the Service of the Church" (pgs. 13-14). The really ambitious can read the next chapter, "The Calendar of the Church Year."
1- What gets your attention?
2- How difficult is it to "keep the happy mean between too much stiffness in refusing, and too much easiness in admitting variations in things once advisedly established" in worship?
3- What is suggested about the shape of our worship in "Concerning the Service of the Church"?
4- Any Big Hard Questions coming to mind?
