Hello listmates, I’m only posting to let anyone who might care know how my Anglican Experience is going. I came here an escapee from Roman Catholicism. Only recently did I shake off a great deal of Romish accretions like prayers for the dead, statues of Mary and the endless praying of rosaries. Well my journey has taken my to a very low-church destination. Snake belly low! I’ve modeled my prayer life after that of the early AA’s when they were heavily influenced by the Oxford Groups of Frank Buchman. I begin Morning Watch, or Quiet Time with my ESV prayer bible (this is a brand new publication containing the complete ESV with 400 prayers interspersed written by Puritans, Reformers, Anglicans, Presbyterians) where I will read two or three verses and then shift into prayer, then return to the text for two or three more verses. There is a reading plan at the back of the Bible that I am following and of course you get to read some of those delicious 400 prayers also every day as well as a psalm, the perfect prayer. Then I use the magazine Tabletalk for bible study. Then I proceed with guidance. If I have a question for God I write it down in my note book and then proceed to write everything that comes to mind without judging it. When you are done (After about ten minutes) you check to see if what you wrote is absolutely honest, pure, unselfish and loving. If it is you’re on the right track. You want to get to a point where what you are writing is God-directed not ego-directed. So yes, I have actually tossed aside my BCP. On the bright side my statue of the Queen arrived today!!!! Rule Britannia!!!
