Sunday Mornings in 2020 | With One Voice: A Journey Through the Lectionary
On the 1st Sunday in Advent we started using the Revised Common Lectionary, Year A, to guide the congregation through the 2019-2020 liturgical year. The RCL is used in many churches across denominations and around the world. It is humbling to realize that on any given Sunday we are proclaiming God’s Story with many different Christians, yet with one voice. Our prayer is that this journey will lead to a continued openness to dialogue and work with Christians from different backgrounds.
