Incense – The Morning Offering

Source: Incense – The Morning Offering

From Old Testament times believers have burned incense as an offering when worshiping God… Ancient pagan kings were often escorted with large fans of peacock feathers and burning incense when entering their palaces. Early Christians took both these symbols for their worship in recognition of Christ as their Sovereign King and Lord.

St. Bede’s does not currently have a location where we can use incense! But if or when, God willing, we do, I hope and plan to use it at least for high feasts!

“Let my prayer be set forth in thy sight as the incense [O Lord]; and let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice.”

~ Psalm 141:2 (Coverdale Psalter, as found in The Book of Common Prayer 1928)

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which our techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
