If only they’d use BCP

12 August 2009


From Mr Derek Bevan
Sir, — Canon Armson (Letters, 17 July) makes his point well. The Book of Common Prayer does adjust the opening verses of lessons when it is appropriate to do so. At a parish church not a million miles from here, however, people (laity and sometimes even clergy) can seldom be persuaded to read from the Prayer Book in preference to a copy, on lectern or in hand, of the Authorised Version itself.
