I am due to conduct the intercessions at Parish Eucharist on the Last Sunday after Trinity, which is to be celebrated as 'Bible Sunday'. Our Vicar has kindy sent me the officially recommended text to assist my drafting. I'm afraid after reading this I gave up and used my own judgement. What normal person ever says 'May the word of Christ dwell richly in our hearts', or 'Speak your word of peace in our midst?' Why can't those writing prayers use ordinary language instead of Holyspeak?
