Joshua 3:10: This is how you will know that the living God is among you and that he will certainly drive out before you the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites and Jebusites.

"Science" as commonly understood in the 21st century is a specialized kind of "knowledge" gained via methods or practices designed to arrive at such knowledge, oriented towards the world as object, or "objective."

October 30 2016 By dvirtue The Anglican Way

The first Book of Common Prayer appeared in 1549. It contained services for daily worship, both morning and evening, and forms for the administration of baptism and the Lord's Supper, along with other ceremonies that were used less often.

The Teaching of the Fathers

Anglicans have classically looked to the early church for our basic standards of belief.
