Lectionary Readings

Rehttp://www.gbod.org/site/c.nhLRJ2PMKsG/b.6115803/k.E4C/Revised__Common_Lectionary__20102011.htm RREVISED COMMON LECTIONARY

The Revised Common Lectionary (1992) is a calendar and table of suggested scripture readings for a three-year cycle. The readings assigned for each Sunday and holy day--typically one each from the [Common] Testament, Epistles, and Gospels--are meant for the weekly service of worship on the Lord's Day. It provides a systematic approach to the use of scripture in worship.

The lectionary follows the outline of the Christian Year. In it the Church celebrates the central mystery of our faith: the life, death, and resurrection of Christ Jesus. The foundation is the Lord's Day, the first day of the week, on which we recall Christ's triumph over sin and death. Each year there are two Christ-centered cycles: Advent-Christmas-Epiphany and Lent-Easter-Pentecost. In each cycle, days of preparation (Advent and Lent) are followed by days of celebration (Christmas-Epiphany and Easter-Pentecost).
