Meanwhile, the work of C056 begins

Episcopal Cafe is reporting that Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music Chair Ruth Meyers sent a letter to all deputies and bishops outlining the work begun on liturgies for blessings as directed by GC2009 Resolution C056 -- a letter which includes in part:
As a first step, I have written to every diocesan bishop in the Episcopal Church to inquire about any provisions they have made for “generous pastoral response to meet the needs of members of this Church,” and any theological and liturgical resources they are commending to the congregations and clergy in their dioceses. Responses to this letter will help the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music in our development of resources for the church.
Read the whole letter here ... and keep the important work of this standing commission in your prayers!

A parishioner of ours is on the committee developing a liturgy in Southern Ohio, and I am helping to draft the theological statement. The bishop has changed diocesan policy effective Easter Day 2010.
