Book of Common Prayer Resolution

You may hear today that General Convention today passed a resolution to revised the Prayer Book. That is only half true. The House of Deputies approved resolution A068. You should be able to read the resolution by following this link:

This resolution will now pass to the House of Bishops for their consideration. They may pass it in exactly the same form we did, in which case the resolution will be approved by the whole of General Convention. They may defeat the resolution, in which case the resolution will be dead. Finally, they may amend the resolution we passed and send it back to us for approval.

The debate on the House of Deputies floor was civil but passionate. The committee that proposed this resolution is chaired by the Very Rev. Sam Candler of our Diocese. They continue to hold open hearings on their various resolutions and entertained hearty debate on this particular resolution.

Continue to watch for further developments.
