Let Us Pray: An Introduction to the Book of Common Prayer

Roderick Dugliss, Ph.D.

March 26 – May 18, 2012

Registration Deadline: March 22, 2012

Pick up a prayer book in any Episcopal Church that still has them available in the pew and you will see a grey line marking frequently-used pages. This survey of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer goes through and beyond the “dirty pages.” Why those pages and not others? What can we learn about and from the rest of this book? The prayer book holds the key to the phrase, “our prayer shapes our belief.” This course is a very basic introduction to the Book of Common Prayer and its use in the liturgical life of The Episcopal Church. We will explore the entire book to discover what that means for Episcopalians today.
