As soon as the final material is made available online I hope to place a link from this site.
The context of this site’s readers differs from place to place. I am sure there is much in this massive work that you can use or adapt usefully in your own context. Some of the material some may find particularly challenging. I am not prepared to debate that on this site. There are plenty of other sites which focus on debate about TEC’s life and direction including its liturgical life. This blog post is providing the service of making this substantial resource more widely available for you to choose and adapt material from as you find appropriate within your own particular context.
