Scarce This Week

Original 1549 Book of Common Prayer

I may be peeking in briefly from time to time this week, but truly I am buried in final proofings and edits for the Book of Common Prayer project I've been helping to edit for the last nine months.

It's been a crazy ride, but this baby's heading off to the printer this week!!!! It's really an amazing prayer book--doctrinally, historically, and Biblically sound yet in modern, accessible language (English Standard Version BIble passages) with a real poetic flair. Father Acker is a genius, and the Spirit has led us far beyond our "normal" giftings as we devote heart, soul, and aching necks to this project.

So, as we close in on what we hope are the final days of this project, I would greatly appreciate prayer for our catching every typo and inconsistency as well as prayer for wide adoption of this prayer book across the Anglican Communion.

Many thanks for supporting and praying for us as this incredible project draws to a close.

With red pen in hand,
