For Further Reference

The Lectionary: A collection of Lectionary resources for the Episcopal Church. Updated every Sunday night.http://www.satucket.com/lectionary/index.htm. From this Index you can go to readings from the Daily Office Lectionary of the Book of Common Prayer, or to Sunday Eucharistic Readings. An option is to use monthly calendars and choose the day or week. The Daily Office Lectionary references are given on a page for the week–Sunday through Saturday–with references for saints of that day and, in some seasons, weekday liturgical readings as well. Calendars for January, February and March 2005 are at these URLs:

Sunday Readings: Thanks to the Revised Common Lectionary, five denominations have a common schedule of readings for Sunday: TheEpiscopal Church in the U.S.A., the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A., the United Church of Christ, and the United Methodist Church (note the alphabetical order). Apparently, the first three also have a common lectionary (for the most part) for daily readings. For a UCC web site on the Sunday readings where you can choose the date (from a drop-down bar) seehttp://www.ucc.org/worship/samuel/. The Vanderbilt Divinity Library maintains a web site for the readings of the Revised Common Lectionary:http://divinity.lib.vanderbilt.edu/lectionary/
