***NOTE: Access the latest version of the Rookie Anglican Daily Office Booklet here.***


This post is a part of Rookie Anglican, a blog dedicated to Making Anglicanism Accessible.

The season of Lent is almost upon us. It begins on Ash Wednesday, March 01, 2017.

In the interests of making the Anglican Church in North America’s Daily Office Lectionary, Morning Prayer, and Evening Prayer more accessible, I have been putting together Daily Office Booklets, which contain the basics of the Morning and Evening Prayer liturgies, as well as the references for all Scripture readings.

(Note: All ACNA liturgies can be found here.)

To review: the ancient Christian practice of beginning and ending each day with Bible reading and prayer is known as the “Daily Office” – as in the “daily service” or “daily duty” of Christians. It finds its roots in ancient Israel. God’s people were commanded to talk about God’s word “when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise” (Deut. 6:7). Our mornings and evenings are important to God.

I believe that, if you follow the Daily Office, you will notice a spiritual difference — in your own life, and in the life of your family!

This new booklet will take you through Holy Saturday, April 15. If there’s enough interest, I plan to create another booklet for the Easter season.

Instructions: How to Access and Assemble the Booklet

    Hi Joshua!

    I love this idea. Wondering if you would make the non-booklet version available as well? This would be useful as a PDF for folks who might want to read it on their iPads, etc.

    Thanks!

    Our printer is able to turn a standard document into a booklet, stapling it in the progress. Is there a simple pdf or doc file of this document prior to its design as a booklet? If so, that would be very helpful for me.

    Many thanks, Joshua! The word document tempts me to change to British spelling for my congregation.
