Exploring the Word, one week at a time

Welcome to St Alban’s Lections!

St Alban’s Episcopal Church in El Cajon, CA follows the practice of the Episcopal Church in the USA by using the Revised Common Lectionary, a three-year cycle of readings that take a congregation through most of the Bible.

The bits of scripture that one hears in church week by week can be a challenge to make sense of without some context, however. I was asked some time ago to compose prefaces for the first and second lections for our congregation’s use. Now I’ve decided to share them more widely. In my next post, I’ll begin with the lessons for the first Sunday in July 2011, in honor of our beloved former rector, D. Rebecca Dinovo.

For the most part, once the backing-up is done, I’ll update this blog weekly.

Feel free to take from these whatever is useful and adapt it to the needs and concerns of your own congregation.
