The Lectionary: Keeping Up With The Church Year

It’s a new year, according to the Church calendar. For those who are interested, the Lectionary (in this case, the Revised Common Lectionary) takes us through the whole of the scriptures over a 3 year period with the rest of the Church.

Advent is the beginning of the Church calendar year, and now would be a good time to connect with the readings if you or your community would like to engage with the wider streams connected with the historic Christian year.

The 3 years are noted as:

Year A (beginning 2007)
Year B (beginning 2008)
Year C (beginning 2009)

and you would traverse the whole of the scriptures if you read these daily.
