Speaking Anglican, like speaking French, implies two people, chatting a bit, and in order to join the conversation one must know the language. So, the programs at Speaking Anglican are designed to bring you into a conversation about the Anglican Faith and introduce you to the symbols and terms that comprise the ‘lingo’ of Anglicanism–as well as a bit of Church History to inform your Christian faith and strengthen you to “do all such good works as God has prepared for you to walk in” (1928 Book of Common Prayer, pg. 83 and Ephesians 2:10).
This site is operated by the Cradle of Prayer, Inc., a non-profit organization whose mission is "to connect to the ancient order of life in Anglican prayer through the complete morning and evening prayer service including confession, reading of The Lord’s Prayer, the Psalms, and prayers from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer (BCP). Select scriptures from the King James Bible are read for the corresponding day, complemented by professionally recorded prayers and song – all ready to download and enjoy in the privacy of home, car, or on the iPod."
