If they are 'amenable to unity' why are they using the most Low Church, protestant version of the BCP in the PECUSA and where in God's name do they find them? Do they print them themselves? :)
Sorry I was a year off - it was the  1789 Book of Common Prayer. It was pretty much the same Book of Common Prayer as was used in the Virginia Colony.

Actually, quite a bit different. The 1662 BCP of the CofE would have been used in Virginia until the publication of the 1789/1790 US BCP (Checked. We were both right. Compiled 1789, published 1790.), with necessary changes in the prayers for the government. The new US BCP was influenced heavily by the Scottish Episcopalian Liturgy of 1764, since Seabury was 'consecrated' by the Scots 'bishops'.

However, as a matter of personal interest I'm still curious where they get a book that hasn't been published since 1892. I've only seen one copy of the 1892 BCP in my life and never seen a 1789/1790 one, despite an interest in that sort of thing, years as an Anglican and with many Anglican clerics as friends. :)

I think it was the 1928 re-print of the 1789. However, I think they held the 1662 service once, but they had to print paper copies and hand them out at the door. It is more like an English translation of the Tridentine Mass
