A NOTE ON OUR READINGS:
The reading plan (or “Lectionary”) we’re following is taken from the Revised Common Lectionary and features a thematic, cohesive, weekly reading including passages from the Old and New Testament, with additional weekly portions of each from the Psalms and Gospels respectively. The lectionary is based on a 3 year cycle that will cover a large portion from every book of the Bible if you follow along in the daily readings. We believe the better we know our scriptures the better we will come to know the Father, his son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. The better we know our God and his redemptive, gracious heart, the better we will be able to represent Him to one another and to the world around us. Additionally, you can request to receive these readings every week in your inbox by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please enjoy this resource. It is our prayer that it will equip you to grow in intimacy with Jesus Christ and with his church knowing that we’re all drinking from the same cup.

OTHER RESOURCES Electronic Access for those who don’t mind a screen 🙂
We will list below a few resources we have found to be helpful in accessing the daily readings. We would love to add to this list as you find other helpful resources, so please let us know!
· LOGOS You can download the Logos 9 Basic Bible study software on your computer. Once you “upgrade” to a basic (Free upgrade) you will be the proud owner of the RCL Daily readings (found in your library). You can download the Logos app to your phone, and then download the RCL in the Logos library on your phone and follow along there. That’s how I do it. It’s a heavy app so your phone will need to be decent. You’ll have to create an account, but you won’t need your credit card for any part of it. You will also get free commentaries and word study tools.
· DailyLectio This app (available for apple and android) offers the daily reading as well as the Sunday readings. It allows you to go back one previous day if you miss a day as well, but it does not allow you to see al the readings for the week at a glance. *Note* The app will open automatically to the “semi-continuous” tab at the top. You’ll want to click on the “Complementary” tab to find the readings for our local church. There is also a prayer drop down you can click on to help guide your prayer if desired.
· The Vanderbilt Divinity Library https://lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu/daily.php?year=A This site will list the readings for the current year. You follow the link above to daily readings or from their main page you can scroll down until you see “Daily Lectionary Readings” listed. Once you are there you can scroll down to today’s date and select the readings listed as “complementary” to find the passages we will be reading from.
