Admirable Simplicity: Principles for Worship Planning in the Anglican Tradition

  • Author: George Wayne Smith
  • Publisher: Church Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2000
  • Pages: 166

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In a why-to rather than a how-to, George Wayne Smith outlines what makes Anglican worship unique. This sensible book is written for worship committees and lay people interested in what distinguishes Anglican worship. It does not propose the right way to do worship, nor is it a step-by-step planning guide. Rather, it surveys the nature of Anglican worship and the inherent simplicity within the rites and rubrics gleaned from primary and secondary sources in the tradition.

George Wayne Smith is the Episcopal bishop of Missouri and a graduate of Baylor University. He also holds advanced and professional degrees from Baylor, Nashotah House, and the University of the South. He has chaired liturgy commissions in two dioceses and is a member of the Association of Diocesan Liturgy and Music Commissions.
