Common Prayer parties for Ordinary Radicals

This blog has taken a very religious tone of late, high time for more nonsense to appear, but until it does, I thought I’d make you aware of something good that’s happening.

A while ago a number of us were asked if we’d like to host parties to celebrate the launch of a new ‘book of common prayer’ which is described as a new monastic resource, full of songs, liturgies, prayers etc. I didnt volunteer, what with living in a very small place and all, but I’m glad to see a number of others in the Uk have signed up.

So, if you’re in or near Birmingham, Coleraine, Glasgow, Saint Andrews or Sheffield, then I reccomend you get along. If you live outside of the UK, look for your nearest party here. They are happening all over the world.

If you’re interested at looking at what the book has to offer, you can see more here. It is effectively a ‘greatest hits’ of the church traditions, something of a post modern melting pot of stuff, from the very old, to the very new. One thing you can be sure of too, is that it will be beautifully and creatively presented. You can pre-order it here, or from your internet retailer of choice.

    1. And going by your track record in politics, you’d organise the rally, and then fail to turn up. You are one of life’s most natural anarchists.

  1. Being disorganised is not the same as being an anarchist. I support the principle of government, but I freely acknowledge its probably better if someone else does it.

  2. Nope, I’m clearly not an Anglican, although I have experienced times when I’ve really appreciated using a daily liturgy. For me, the answer is probably more liturgy not less – the problem is that it is hard to keep up on your own.
