Aid sought

Greetings on the great Feast of the Epiphany.

The Prayer Book Society of the USA is keen to make available for general use a study of HOW TRADITIONAL CHURCHES GROW -- I mean churches which use the classic prayer book and Bible version.

By growth we mean of course growth in both numbers and in maturity of faith, hope and love.

We look for real examples and for the explanation given by those who have witnessed growth of this kind. (We are of course aware of the church growth movement and the massive popular literature and aids but most of the principles of this movement can hardly be applied to traditional churches -- be they Anglican, Lutheran or Roman -- if they believe it their vocation to stay "traditional".)

The reasons for growth may seem obvious but nevertheless we want to hear of them & state them togther with stories of real growth so as to encourage others.

Please contact me or

Please visit also the PBS websites -- and

Let us pray for a Year of true growth in holiness and converts.

Many thanks
