Narrative Lectionary Daily Readings
The Narrative Lectionary focuses our congregation on one Scripture reading each Sunday. Below are some suggested readings to make connections between this past Sunday’s and next Sunday’s texts or to examine related stories in Scripture (from the fine folks at www.clergystuff.com). Further resources for reflection can be found in the inserts in Sunday’s bulletin. (Updated Mondays.)
