I had a meeting yesterday with my future Vestry Secretary to plan the Institution service and catch up on news. We have a new liturgy for the Institution which contains a rather old-fashioned prayer which the new incumbent reads after they have been laden down with bibles, and oil, and bread and wine, etc. With a little bit of Googling we have discovered it came from TEC. I don’t like it and I want a new one! Does anyone out in blogland have a nice modern, inclusive prayer that their church uses?
I also learned that my new church uses the previous Sunday readings for the Thursday morning eucharist. I have always used the readings set for the day. What do other churches do?
