Previously, I dedicated a post to resources to assist Anglicans in their daily prayer, catechesis, and devotional life: Online BCP, Sermon, & Catechesis Resources. Since then, I have discovered a few additional resources that need to be shared.
For several years I have wished there was an app that would contain the Anglican formularies. Someone has finally created an app for both iOS and Droid that contains the daily office from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. It is www.anglicanhours.com and the iTunes link is: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/anglican-hours/id1330286668?ls=1&mt=8 while the Droid link is: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.anglicanhours.lifeofprayer.
The app developer admits this is a work in progress and is extremely receptive to comments, suggestions, and identifying any bugs. He is to be commended for doing this work of love and I am very grateful to his contribution to making Anglican devotions easily accessible. I’m hopeful he will add the Athanasian Creed, Family Prayer sections from the 1928 BCP, Thirty-Nine Articles, and the Homilies.
Several excellent resources are located on the revamped Reformed Episcopal Church website: http://www.recus.org/resources.html. The Modern Language Edition of REC’s 2003 BCP (which is a slightly updated 1928 with modifications from the 1662) is now available here: http://www.recus.org/documents/ModernLanguageBCP.pdf. Also available is the REC’s Book of Occasional Services: http://www.recus.org/documents/Book-of-Occasional-Services.pdf. Finally, an excellent essay from REC’s Presiding Bishop Ray Sutton, entitled, “A Catechetical Model for Evangelism.” The REC continues to pave the way within the ACNA regarding how liturgical revision can occur and be faithful to the prayer book tradition. May their tribe increase.
If you are aware of additional resources please feel free to leave a comment or contact me and I will include.
