General Convention 2006

Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling. Then I will go to the altar of God, and I will praise you . . . Psalm 43:3-4

Petition your Priest

"Will you be loyal to the doctrine, discipline, and worship of Christ as this Church has received them? And will you, in accordance with the canons of this Church, obey your bishop and other ministers who may have authority over you and your work?"

Does this sound familiar? These are the words spoken by the bishop in the Ordinal from the Book of Common Prayer, p. 526. And now your priest has an opportunity to reaffirm their answer to this question.

The Rev. Canon David Roseberry of Christ Church in Plano, Texas, has authored a remarkable website, BCP526, named for the page in the Book of Common Prayer on which most clergy take their vow. BCP526 offers an opportunity for your priest to reaffirm this vow and become witnesses for all Episcopal clergy.

Spread the word about BCP526. Take your priest to lunch (I've never known a priest to turn down an invitation!), or use the form found on BCP526 to send an e-mail. Do it now!
