AMERICAN UNITARIAN ASSOCIATION. Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1869, by
THE AMERICAN UNITARIAN ASSOCIATION,
In the Clerk's Office of the District Court for the District of Massachusetts.
THE order contemplated in the common use of the Services
is as follows:THE INTRODUCTORY SENTENCES are to be read in whole or in part, according to discretion, by the superintendent.
THE SCRIPTURE READINGS are to be read in alternate sentences by the superintendent and the school; the former reading the paragraphs which are printed in the usual place, and the school reading those that are set a little to the right.
THE PRAYERS are to be repeated in concert by the superintendent and school.
Appropriate HYMNS are named for each service, as a convenience, - not to prevent freedom of selection.
If a longer service is desired, it can be had by singing another hymn before the reading of the Introductory Sentences; if a shorter one, by omitting the sentences; or, if shorter still, by using only one hymn and the prayer.
