Overview


Barbara Crafton rises early each morning, lights a candle, opens her Book of Common Prayer, and reads the morning office – the ancient Christian service that praises God at the beginning of a new day. When she is done, she sits at her computer and sends an email that says simply, “Let us bless the Lord,” the traditional closing line of the morning prayer service. Her devoted email readers—having taken part in the ritual themselves— reply, “Thanks be to God.”

Crafton communicates with thousands of subscribers to her daily email meditations. They – and others who say the Daily Offices – will treasure this collection of brief meditations. Based on the assigned biblical texts for each day of Year Two’s Easter through Pentecost seasons, Crafton’s writings complement perfectly the morning, noon, evening, and nighttime prayers that comprise this beautiful tradition.
