The Officiant begins the silent broadcast 8:30 am. This is to alert you that someone will be at the church, door opened, by 9 am. Broadcast will go live just before the start time. If broadcast is not on-line by 8:45 the scheduled officiant may not be at the church (inclement weather, etc.), but will broadcast remotely, so you can still join.
We'll use the Book of Common Prayer version on page 75 and following. Downloadable copy of the liturgy is here. Click on "The Daily Office" and then on "Morning Prayer: Rite Two."
If you would like a hard copy of the Book of Common Prayer, please contact us at 208-882-2022 or .
What some might call the restrictions of the daily office they find to be an opportunity to foster the inner life. The hours are appointed and named… Life’s fretfulness is transcended. The different and the novel are sweet, but regularity and repetition are also teachers… And if you have no ceremony, no habits, which may be opulent or may be simple but are exact and rigorous and familiar, how can you reach toward the actuality of faith, or even a moral life, except vaguely? The patterns of our lives reveal us. Our habits measure us. Our battles with our habits speak of dreams yet to become real. –Mary Oliver
