Resolutions from 1908

Resolution 27

In any revision of the Book of Common Prayer which may hereafter be undertaken by competent authority the following principles should be held in view:

  1. the adaptation of rubrics in a large number of cases to present customs as generally accepted;

  2. the omission of parts of the services to obviate repetition or redundancy;

  3. the framing of additions to the present services in the way of enrichment;

  4. the fuller provision of alternatives in our forms of public worship;

  5. the provision for greater elasticity in public worship;

  6. the change of words obscure or commonly misunderstood;

  7. the revision of the Calendar and Tables prefixed to the Book of Common Prayer.
