SCLM Seeks Comments

Adapted from the Episcopal Church’s Office of Public Affairs

The Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music (SCLM) seeks comment on A Great Cloud of Witnesses, its proposed approach to commemorations. The full proposal is on the commission’s blog. The SCLM explains in its proposal:

A Great Cloud of Witnesses represents the desire of General Convention for a revision of the calendar of the Church that reflects the lively experience of sainthood, especially on the level of the local community. In this way, A Great Cloud of Witnesses is a tool for learning about the history of the Church and identifying those who have inspired us and challenged us from the time of the New Testament down to the present moment.

“The Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music welcomes suggestions and comments as we prepare for General Convention 2015,” said the Rev. Ruth Meyers, the SCLM’s chair. “We hope that this new approach responds to the feedback we’ve received on Holy Women, Holy Men.”

The SCLM welcomes comments on its weblog post or via email. More background on the SCLM is available on its General Convention webpages.
