The Layman's Guide to the Lectionary

The Layman's Guide to the Lectionary

By Rev. Steve Andrews Jr.

Many churches use a lectionary, a series of Bible readings, in their worship together. In a one year lectionary, you would read the same Scriptures in church this weekend next year that you would read this weekend. In this podcast, we will do a weekly Bible study (50-60 minutes) on the LCMS' three year lectionary, which is what we use in the congregation I serve. Our lectionary includes an Old Testament reading, Epistle reading, and Gospel reading. It is Pastor Andrews' goal to help you grow deeper in your understanding and love of God's Word. You may reach him at andrews@gracefaithlove.org.
