Evangelicals On The Canterbury Trail

The title of a book by Robert Webber, of recent repose, is indeed a fitting description for most of the clergy and people that make up the Society's parishes and ministries.

For more than a dozen years, people have journeyed from diverse and varied backgrounds to embrace the Book of Common Prayer which gives words to their faith, a grounded identity and have discovered a growing love for the Sacraments, the means of grace.

Perhaps more e
xciting has been the privilege of sharing in the work of Christ, in fulfilling the Great Commission and sharing the faith with those who had never known the Lord. We love witnessing lives changed by the power of the Gospel.

We do not presume to come to this Thy Table, O merciful Lord, trusting in our own righteous but in thy manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under Thy Table. But Thou art the same Lord whose property is always to have mercy. Grant us therefore, gracious Lord, so to eat the flesh of thy dear Son Jesus Christ, and to drink his blood, that our sinful bodies may be made clean by his body, and our souls washed through his most precious blood, and that we may evermore dwell in him, and he is us. Amen.
