Year A Lectionary Readings

In our worship services, we usually have two scripture readings, one gospel reading and another reading, taken from the lectionary readings. Below is a listing of lectionary readings for the church year. Each reading has a link to the New International Version (NIV), the Bible we have in our pews. Each day has a VDL link to the Vanderbilt Divinity Library, which shows all the readings in the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) on one page. Note that the Bible Gateway website also has the readings in audio and has many different Bible translations, different English versions as well as versions in foreign languages. Detailed scripture study for each Sunday can be found here, at Textweek Sermon and lectionary resources can also be found at The United Church of Canada Worship Resources and Upcoming Liturgical Dates sites.
