Description

3-5 pm:  Imagining a New Prayer Book: A Forum with the Rev. Dr. Ruth Meyers

The 2015 General Convention called for a plan for revision of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer that will “utilize the riches of our Church’s liturgical, cultural, racial, generational, linguistic, gender and ethnic diversity in order to share common worship.” Join us to explore the possibilities and challenges for Prayer Book revision. What should change? What should be added? What should we keep? We’ll consider how a new prayer book can enable the Episcopal Church to gather and form faithful disciples in the 21st century, and how our common worship can express and shape our participation in the mission of God.

At the convocation, honorary degrees will be awarded to the Rev. Eliza Linley '90, the Rev. Canon Robert Brooks '73, and Dr. Ronald Johnson.
