The Prayer Book

If you've found yourself on this blog, then you want to discover more about the Prayer Book. The Book of Common Prayer is the uniting factor for Anglicans. No matter what kind of Anglican church, we all use this book of prayer to worship, not only on Sundays but throughout the week as well. 

One of the things that we love about the Prayer Book is that it connects us to a reality that we take for granted now, and that's being able to worship in our own language. English Book of common prayer and our English Bibles are literally written in the blood of committed reformers.

The reason that is significant is that through the medieval ages, scripture and the liturgy, which is what the Book of Common Prayer is, was in Latin. 

When we are reading this, and when we are reading English Bibles, we're just tracing ourselves all the way back to this line of all of over five hundred years of efforts to make the liturgy, to make the scriptures, to make the faith accessible to people who speak the English language.

As 21st century Anglican Christian, this is the one thing in our lives that doesn't change, and it represents God's love forever from all eternity.
