Delegates to General Synod 2023 in Calgary will consider changes that would make it easier to amend the Declaration of Principles, Constitution, and Canons dealing with discipline, worship and doctrine. For the sake of informed, responsible discussion and decisions, we have gathered essays from historians and theologians about the role of the historic episcopate within Anglican ecclesiology. Our deep thanks to the Living Church for publishing this series. 

MOST gracious God, we humbly beseech thee for thy holy Catholic Church. Fill it with all truth; in all truth with all peace. Where it is corrupt, purify it; where it is in error, direct it; where any thing is amiss, reform it; where it is right, strengthen and confirm it; where it is in want, furnish it; where it is divided and rent asunder, make it whole again; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (Prayer for the Church Universal, BCP p. 39)
