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. In 2009, then-rector D. Rebecca Dinovo asked me to compose prefaces for the first and second lections, to give a little background and sometimes to mention material that has been omitted from a particular lection. In July 2011 I started sharing them on this blog, along with my “further thoughts”.

For the most part, 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.
