Notice of changes in the New Testament Schedule

Beginning on January 21, 2021, the schedule of lessons for the New Testament, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes has been changed. Every day will feature either full chapters from those books or readings for fixed-date holy days from the One Year Lectionary for the period from Trinity Sunday through the Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany spread throughout the period from early June through mid February, scheduled on fixed-dates, not on their appointed Sundays. The Epistle and Gospel lessons scheduled specifically around the date of Easter are not included in this schedule, but can be found at https://oneyearlectionary.com/

The Psalter and remaining Old Testament schedule remains essentially the same.

The annual schedule begins on the morning of December 29. The editor will edit the posts from that date forward as time permits, but will attempt to have all future posts based on the revised schedule.
