Hmm, Gone Missing

I was looking over the rite for installing of servants of the congregation, and noticed a line missing. The LW Agenda said:

"You are to see that the services of God's house are held at the proper times, *in accordance with the order of our Church*, that the Word of God is purely preached and taught..." (LW Agenda, p. 281)

The LSB Agenda has:

"You are to see that the services of God's house are held at the proper times, that the Word of God is purely preached and taught..."

Now, I don't know about you, but *I* think the loss of the phrase "according to the order of our Church" is a sad loss indeed. Where did it go?

Which of the nouns in the phrase do you think was found objectionable by those who edited the work?

Fr. Gregory,

Don't be such a tease! I suspect the problem was with the implication that our Church HAS an order.

Suppose you are right. What does that mean?-- given all that happened under the previous agenda, which at least *mentioned* an order?
