"I simply went online to Morehouse or CPI to order a desk calendar and an Episopal shield for my car.. I was referred to the Seattle Independent Episcopal Bookstore. To my surprise and delight I received a warm and personal response from John explaining the processing of my order, and when the package arrived a handwritten thank you... all accompanied with "Blessings" from John and Nancy. I was in the care, not of an organization, but of my very own church family, on the opposite coast, offering personal blessings and care, in addition to the items I needed. I can't wait to go to Seattle so I can meet them at the bookstore.
Thanks, John and Nancy, and God Bless You!

Book of Common Prayer/Hymnal 1982 Combination, Black
Binding: Genuine Leather
This volume and its companion in red cover are a very popular book, both for one's own personal use, and as a gift. For those who sing in the Episcopal Church regularly, combining the prayer book with the Episcopal Hymnal makes a handy gift, for yourself or someone you care about.
It combines The Book of Common Prayer 1979 and The Hymnal 1982 in one elegant volume bound in genunine leather. It is printed on special lightweight paper and is chancel size (5-7/8 x 8-1/4). It includes gold page edges, six ribbon markers, and comes in its own gift box.
This volume now includes the Revised Common Lectionary replacing the former Sunday Eucharistic Lectionary. (The Daily Office Lectionary has not changed and it remains as it has been in this book.)
The Episcopal Church uses the prayer book during worship, in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, as well as during the Daily Offices of Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Compline. Episcopalians also value The Book of Common Prayer (prayer book) for daily private devotions and prayers.

Quality of the book and inscription are perfect. Production and shipping were prompt. Communications from the owner were heart-felt as if we were friends.

By blind luck I found John and Nancy when looking for a prayerbook for an adult confirmation. They've willingly and quickly helped me out of a jam when I ordered another (and forgot to hit enter to have it personalized.) Somehow I love the coast to coast connection..two of the prayer/hymnals are in Eastport ME.
Thanks to you both for your loving care and concern.

I love my new prayer book with Hymnal combined. Since I am a choir member at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Jackson TN, it has been a useful source of convenience when having hymns and Prayers of the People on Sundays. The name embossing on the front was beautifully scripted and I love the different colored ribbon markers that I can use to know which hymn we will be singing throughout the service.
Your personal touch with delivery was thoughtful and sincere. I received it in ample time and I also am using the cross with my robe.
Thank you for giving me a place to find exactly what I needed to make my spiritual life a special touch.

Having been gifted with a "hand me down" BOC/Hymnal years ago, I could not think of any better gift for a dear friend who is moving away. My friend only sang with our choir for a year but in that year, he wormed his way into my heart. He and his family are moving several states away and I wanted to not only give him something that would remind him of his time with us but also might encourage him to keep singing in his new home. The gift is truly beautiful and I could not have asked for better. Thank you for your assistance.

We gifted this combination Prayer and Hymnal book to our grandson as a Confirmation gift to cherish.
What a convenience having both Prayer and Hymnal in one. No more juggling books!
His first reaction was "my whole name is on the book too."
I have purchased from you in the past and will be ordering more of these books in the near future. Thanks and God Bless
