The Presidential Address to the Annual Meeting of the Society by the Reverend John A Lamb, MA, BD, Ph D, DD, Librarian at New College, the University of Edinburgh
What does that phrase mean? Dr Lamb explores derivations, the roots in the Hebrew and Greek Bible and its use in classical liturgical prayers (the Gloria Patri, Gloria in Excelsis and Sanctus).He also notes usage in prayers from various church traditions. Finally, the glory of God is upheld within a reflection on the aims of the Church Service Society. He affirms the “objectivity” of worship as opposed to forms of worship aimed at popularity.
