This resolution did not pass General Convention
Returned by House of Bishops to Standing Commission of Liturgy and Music
to "perfect" language
.

Proposed Resolution 2012-A053:
Authorize Liturgical Materials for Honoring God in Creation

Resolved, the House of _______ concurring, That the 77th General Convention authorize Liturgical Materials Honoring God in Creation, found in the Blue Book report of the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music, for use in The Episcopal Church; and be it further

Resolved, That the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music consider these liturgical materials for inclusion in a revised edition of The Book of Occasional Services.


Proposer: Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music

Explanation:

These materials respond to the desire for liturgical materials for a season of creation as expressed in resolutions proposed to the 76th General Convention. Rather than establishing a season of creation, these liturgical texts allow congregations and other groups to honor God in creation in a variety of contexts. While the Book of Occasional Services is being revised, the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music proposes to make these texts available electronically.

Proposed Propers for the Honoring of God in Creation are available here.
