The Book of Common Prayer is one of the hallmarks of the Episcopal Church, connecting us to our Anglican roots and Communion members around the world. What do you know about its history, contents, and role in our worship and theology?
In this three part series Sundays, August 16, 23 and 30, 2009, we explored our BCP. The series was led by the Rev. Marilyn Baldwin and the Rev. Debra Welch.
