About lectionaries

A lectionary is a table of readings from Scripture appointed to be read at public worship.

The Lectionary (1969, revised 1981), developed by the Roman Catholic Church after Vatican II, provided for a three-year cycle of Sunday readings. This Roman lectionary provided the basis for the original lectionary in 1979 edition of The Book of Common Prayer, as well as for lectionaries developed by many other denominations.

The Common Lectionary, published in 1983, was an ecumenical project of several American and Canadian denominations, developed out of a concern for the unity of the church and a desire for a common experience of Scripture. It was intended as a harmonization of the many different denominational approaches to the three-year lectionary.

The Revised Common Lectionary, published in 1992 and officially adopted [as slightly revised] by The Episcopal Church in 2006, takes into account constructive criticism of the Common Lectionary, based on the evaluation of its trial use. It is now the primary lectionary in the current Prayer Book. There is a three-year cycle of Sunday Eucharistic readings in which Matthew, Mark, and Luke are read in successive years with some material from John read in each year.

In addition to the Revised Common Lectionary, the Episcopal Church also has a two-year cycle of readings for use at the daily offices. Some find the Daily Office Lectionary useful as a part of their personal devotions.

Church of the Redeemer

Welcome to Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
