The Rev. Victoria Weinstein (PeaceBang) wrote today about a funeral she performed yesterday and the risks for not having your liturgical elements prepared. She did not have her copy of the 1894 Universalist prayerbook at hand and discovered the canonical text of Psalm 90 isn’t the same used in the funeral service. Both her anecdote and the way the Universalists edited the text were about pastoral preparation, including the way she recovered. But more about that another time.
In time, I’ll get the Book of Prayer (its proper title) in a proper PDF format, like Relly’s Union (download here, registration required). It really is a good resource, less for its originality — it is very close to the Episcopal Church’s 1892 Book of Common Prayer — than for how it was abbreviated and the humanizing touches the editors added.
Until the PDF, you can read the text here.
