“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.
I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
