USA: Texas, 12-13 June, 2001
Trinity Episcopal Church in Dallas is holding a two-day conference: New Tool for Evangelism and Church Growth: Morning Prayer for the 21st Century.' For generations, Morning Prayer was the distinctive Episcopal service. Today it's increasingly hard to find. And that's too bad. Because the service of Morning Prayer is not only one of the loveliest liturgies anywhere, it's also one of the most evangelistically useful. In fact, Morning Prayer has rightly been called "the Episcopal version of a seeker service." When presented with freshness and Biblical clarity, it may be the ideal liturgical vehicle for presenting the Gospel message'.
