Peter Moore—Merry Anglicanism

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Take this two minute quiz: Did you know….

• That the Book of Common Prayer had been translated into 200 languages, including Mohawk, as far back as the 17th and 18th centuries?

• That there was a campaign to get a bishop for the Church of England in America as early as 1704?

• That in the month of October, 1831, this country saw one of the greatest revivals of religion it had ever envisioned – and it started in Beaufort, SC?

Read it all (page 15).

Several of the points in the article were known to me probably from our former bishop who is a storehouse of bits of church history.Many of the presentations were made available online and I was able to watch through a number of them. I, too, thought it a rather important point that Bp Nazir-Ali made about the conditionality of the promise in connection to the Great Commision in Matthew’s Gospel.

However this statement in the article

The first service of worship using the Book of Common Prayer happened in 1579 in California?

perhaps needs a qualifier such as “first in the New World” since I presume this is a reference to Francis Drake and Nova Albion.
