Worship and Sacred Actions Throughout the Year in the Reformed Episcopal Churches
The Reformed Episcopal Church (REC) embraces the English liturgical tradition as expressed in The Book of Common Prayer. The denomination has retained the Christian year primarily because of its commitment to the Word of God, first and foremost. REC worship leaders take the Pauline injunction to “redeem the time” (Eph. 5:16) to mean that the daily, weekly, and seasonal cycles of time created by God should all be sanctified through worship.
