Dean’s Bulletin Board 7.06.2019
This article does a very good job of talking about where the Anglican Church in North America’s new 2019 Book of Common Prayer went wrong. There is a lot to say about it, but it seems to me that the ACNA missed a great opportunity to put North American Anglicanism (a part of it anyway), back on a right Prayer Book orientation. That is, a Prayer Book that has the 1662 as its foundation. This new prayer book says a lot by what it includes, but it says even more by what it willfully excludes, a service of Holy Communion based on Cranmer’s liturgy of 1552.
I could encourage you to listen to the podcast that is referenced, but Drew Keane is right in his analysis. In today’s parlance, the podcast falls under the category of ‘fake news.’
PS: One should also not miss the irony that the Diocese of Quincy, an anglo-catholic diocese in the ACNA, has banned its use in Sunday services. It sounds like nobody is happy with the result!
