Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music will present options to General Convention on possible prayer book revision

From ENS- (lots of links)

The Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music (SCLM) plans to present the 2018 General Convention with four options regarding the possible revision of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, said the Rev. Devon Anderson, commission chair.

The options, discussed in detail on the SCLM’s blog, are:

Revision of the prayer book beginning after the 2018 General Convention;
Creation of a book or books of alternative services beginning after the 2018 General Convention, with no accompanying revision of the prayer book;

A postponement of the decision on the prayer book and supplemental resources until the completion of a church-wide conversation on liturgical theology and practice during the 2018-2021 triennium
A step back from liturgical revision and a commitment to exploring the theology of the current prayer book in greater depth.
