This year I will be taking the weekly Collects from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. I will post the readings, along with any rubrics, under the Collect. And then I will be quoting some meditative thoughts from a work by C. Frederick Barbee and Paul F. M. Zahl, “The Collects of Thomas Cranmer”, Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1999 (ISBN: 0-8028-3845-6). On occasion I may also append some personal observations along with those of the earlier Church fathers. I look forward to this coming year and hope to be able to serve you well.
