So as Advent begins we here at St. Luke are beginning something new – the Narrative Lectionary. This lectionary is a four year pattern that begins in September and ends in May/June and goes from Genesis, through the birth, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus, through the life of the early church. So for Advent I want us to dig deeper into the texts for this new lectionary. Each week we will have a preaching text and another text (when a gospel is the preaching text, the other text is a Psalm and when a non-gospel is the preaching text the other text is a gospel) – and for Faith 5 I want to encourage us to go deeper into the stories of the preaching texts – because, well, that’s the point of the Narrative Lectionary. The texts are typically longer, so choose what works for your family within each story.
So here are the texts:
Please be in conversation with me about how these are working for you. Things can only change when we hear from you!
