Lectionary Ruminations 2.5 is a further revision and refinement of my Lectionary Ruminations and Lectionary Ruminations 2.0. Focusing on The Revised Common Lectionary Readings for the upcoming Sunday from New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) of the Bible, Lectionary Ruminations 2.5 draws on over thirty-five years of pastoral experience. Believing that the questions we ask are often more important than any answers we find, without over reliance on commentaries, and with sometimes pointed and snarky comments and Socratic like questions, I attempt to encourage reflection and rumination for readers preparing to lead a Bible study, draft liturgy, preach, or hear the Word. Reader comments are invited and encouraged.
We will soon be celebrating the First Sunday in Lent, followed by Easter, the Easter Season, and the Day of Pentecost – Year A, the year of Matthew. Here are links to the various Lectionary Ruminations 2.5 covering the period from the First Sunday in Lent through the Day of Pentecost (Year A).
