    Sent June 11th 2018

    Sent March 14th 2018

    "Amen" in the Book of Common Prayer The word amen appears frequently in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. It is not printed the same in all places, however. My latest blog post examines the use of the word in our prayer book. The post links to a ...

  4. On Being a Proud Christian Democrat
    Sent December 11th 2017

  8. Collect for a Troubled Nation
    Sent February 8th 2017

    Collect for a Troubled Nation In these times, I think it appropriate to pray for deliverance from a government run amuck. The BCP has no prayer that really addresses this need. I drafted a prayer along these lines and received comments about it from Face...
