Jane Williams for Year B

We have begun a new Jane Williams Reflections page for the new church year beginning November 30 (Year B, the Year of Mark). Questions and creative ideas for using Jane’s material are on this new page. This week’s focus is on spiritual practice associated with “staying awake” or “being fully present to the moment”.

Jane Williams, a correction

Jane Williams’ questions have been updated today, with a corrected date for the “Judgment of the Nations” reading (to 23 November) and a short but pointed set of questions for the Parable of the Investment (Talents) 16 November.

These readings bring us to the conclusion of Year A.

Updates and Eucharistic Prayers

Updates for Jane Williams’ reflection questions and ideas are posted through until November 16. Music lists are also available for all those dates, but the 16 November is a provisional list only, music-wise. There are some really good Youtube clips.

EUCHARISTIC PRAYERS

Did you know that there are many Eucharistic Prayers that you can use, including those authorized by Anglican Churches around the world? For example, Bosco Peters has provided a significant collection, including ones to use with children here .

There are two from the Church of England on this page. But do note that our NZ  prayers use language which is much more inclusive!

In the Diocese of Auckland, if you are creating liturgy, say, according to the rubrics on p.511ff), your Enabler should review it before use, or you can approach a bishop directly for approval.
