Common Order

Rev Charles Robertson

The Revd Charles Robertson responds to a review of the 1994 Common Order, particularly in its not offering a single authoritative order for Holy Communion as had the 1979 edition and in failing to place the narrative of institution within the great prayer, by pointing out that the compilers were following the balance of opinion expressed by commissioners at the General Assembly in offering a variety of provision as in the 1940 book and retaining the narrative as a Warrant independent of the prayer.
