2012 General Convention worship to draw on diverse resources

Worship at General Convention will demonstrate diverse liturgy and music from across the Episcopal Church.

“It’s a combination of everything that the Episcopal Church has at its disposal that’s been approved,” said the Rev. Charles Dupree, rector of Trinity Episcopal Church, Bloomington, Indiana, co-chair of the convention worship planning committee.

Eucharist will be celebrated each day, with different services using formats from Enriching Our Worship or from the Book of Common Prayer”˜s Rite 1 or Rite 2. Music will come from the 1982 Hymnal; Lift Every Voice and Sing II; Wonder, Love and Praise; Voices Found; El Himnario; and Flor Y Canto, a Spanish music resource.

Read it all.

    So much for “Common” prayer.

    It is guaranteed to be a perfect dog’s breakfast, as they say. I feel sorry for Our Lady of Vladimir, who is going to have to see what they’re doing.

    I don’t see any particular reason for snark, as it all seems to be coming from approved resources. What I am tired of at our own diocesan conventions are innovative, written on the fly, whatever-the-committee-found-interesting liturgies. If anything, the fact that they are sticking to the BCP, the Hymnal, LEVS, WLP etc… is actually comforting.
