Virginia Theological Seminary has published a helpful series of "bible briefs” that are especially good at teasing out some of St. Mark's theological emphases. We are currently working our way through lectionary Year B. Learn more about Virginia Theological Seminary.
the revised common lectionary
The Revised Common Lectionary is a table of scripture readings that are appointed for worship. The practice of having specific texts for a specific day began as early as the fourth century and continues to our present day. Over the year there have been different versions of lectionaries and today we use the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) for the Episcopal Church. Each Sunday, there are readings from the Old Testament, Psalms, New Testament, and the Gospels. Learn more about the RCL here.
You can also easily stay up to date with Sunday and Daily Bible readings with the Satuket Lectionary. It’s an online tool to help you know where we are in the readings each day.
THE WAY OF LOVE: PRACTICES FOR A JESUS-CENTERED LIFE
