About the Lectionary

lectionary.jpg

“A lectionary is collection of readings or selections from the Scriptures, arranged and intended for proclamation during worship of the people of God.” (The Revised Common Lectionary, p. 9. Nashville: Abingdon, 1992.)

This collection of readings from scriptures is used by pastors and church leaders in the planning of worship, sermons, and daily meditation. We use the Revised Common Lectionary which is used by many Protestant denominations around the world. It was created by the Consultation on Common Texts in 1992. (Read more about the Revised Common Lectionary.)

Each week, the lectionary lists four readings. The Revised Common Lectionary uses a three-year cycle. Each year starts with Advent, the beginning of the church year.

Seeing young people, both men and women, participate in and write their testimonies at The Upper Room daily devotional writers’ workshop in Yangon, 2019, has been a highlight for me. The event and testimonies led to the publication of the first Lenten devotional in the Myanmar language. I truly believe that through The Upper Room ministry, the Lord will continue to equip people in Myanmar to grow and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
