What is the lectionary? 

The lectionary is a pre-selected collection of scriptural readings from the Bible that many Christian churches use for worship, study and to increase commonality and fellowship among Christian churches.
It is a powerful thing when the same Scriptures are being studied in Churches worldwide, for individual Bible Study and in the sermons.
Paraklete Press uses the Revised Common Lectionary for our main quarterly booklets, which follows the liturgical year in a 3-year cycle.
