In this episode, we talk about prayer and one of the ways Episcopalians engage in a prayer practice. We explore the daily office and how to use the Book of Common Prayer to move through the Daily Office.
About the Daily Office
“After the Anglican Reformation, Archbishop Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556) reduced the eight monastic offices to the two services of Morning and Evening Prayer. These services were printed in vernacular English and intended for use by all members of the church. Participation in the Daily Office is at the heart of Anglican spirituality. It is the proper form of daily public worship in the church. The officiant (person who leads) in the Daily Office may be a member of the clergy or a lay person.” (The Episcopal Church Glossary).
