I do not wish to imply in any way that the SCLM is trying to introduce a new Trinitarian theology. Rather, I want to suggest that the Trinitarian implications of their revisions take a back seat to the stated goal of removing gendered language for God.
The way I am providing a picture of the revised eucharistic rite as a whole in Enriching Our Worship is to outline a summary of the ways in which it changes and edits the Rite II communion service in the current 1979 BCP.
