Lectionary

We use the Revised Common Lectionary, a list of Bible readings used by many churches and denominations around the world.

The specific readings, the reflection that begins our worship, and a guiding question for this season are below.

2021 Trinity Lectionary: The Strength of Threeness

Wooden three-legged stool

A booklet that was circulated in 1965 by the Church of the Saviour … contained the following statement: “From the earliest days of the church a core assumption has been that  the greatest impact on the world comes about by small, committed and  disciplined communities of people focused on outward mission, inward  transformation, and loving, accountable community.” When Seekers Church formed in 1976, it embraced the three “legs” of a Christian life: the inward journey, supported by daily spiritual practices; the outward journey of mission in the world;  and a community of committed people who deepen their lives of faith  together and hold each other accountable.
