The Prayer Book Office

20121221-173602.jpg

On a lighter note, tonight marks 20 years since I began seriously to use the Daily Office as a regular part of my spiritual discipline.

Howard Galley’s two volumes, The Prayer Book Office and Morning and Evening Prayer, were invaluable to me as I took the first steps and felt my way into this way of praying.

Regrettably, The Prayer Book Office remains out of print. One can occasionally find a copy of Morning and Evening Prayer, a nice volume with selected readings and psalms suited for the beginner or those who prefer a simpler version of the office.

Anyway, on this anniversary day, whether you’re just starting out or celebrating many years following the Prayer Book pattern, I pray that “the God of hope will fill you with all joy and peace in believing, through the power of the Holy Spirit.”

    Rodger,

    Have you asked Operation Passalong at Hillspeak for copies of these books? They might have some and all it costs you is postage.

    I love you, Mom (finally reading my emails. Tis a wonderful picture of you and Alex! Can you make an actual, hold-it-in-my-hands copy?
