The Society for Eastern Rite Anglicanism

I joined this group, the Society of Eastern Rite Anglicanism (S.E.R.A.), and recommend it to other Anglicans interested in great traditions of Eastern Christianity.

From the S.E.R.A. web site:
"The Society for Eastern Rite Anglicanism is a faith-based organization committed to promoting and sustaining a movement towards an established Eastern Rite in the Anglican Communion. Founded in 2013, Society for Eastern Rite Anglicanism (SERA) is a faith-based organization committed to promoting and sustaining a movement towards an established Eastern Rite in the Anglican Communion. To achieve this mission, the society is gathering together people interested in exploring this goal and provides support and resources to those interested in using Eastern Rite liturgies in an Anglican setting. The Society for Eastern Rite Anglicanism accepts individuals members, Affiliate Congregations, Diocese, or Communities (monasteries, schools)."

Anglicanism has always had a flirtation with the East, all the way back to the days Elizabeth, Lancelot Andrewes, and the Carolinian divines. The 1979 Prayer Book has some nice Eastern Elements and prayers, such as the Phos Hilarion and the Great Litany (Prayers of the People I).
