Eagles that Pray

RCL (Revised Common Lectionary) for Episcopalians

If you have found this page by independent search, welcome, in Jesus’ Name. You have found the weblog, “Eagles That Pray”, of St. John Church, Tulare, CA, a traditional parish in The Episcopal Church in the United States of America, and of the Diocese of San Joaquin.

St. John’s has made the transition in authorized Lectionaries, from the Book of Common Prayer Sunday Lectionary (Years A, B and C), to the Revised Common Lectionary (with adjustments for TECUSA).    This page includes all Sundays and several non-Sunday major Feast Days, including choices made as allowed by options on quite a few Sundays during the Sundays after Pentecost, for the Revised Common Lectionary (Episcopal variant). WHAT YOU SEE LINKED HERE ARE THE OPTIONS CHOSEN FOR ST JOHN’S! Any other options provided from the Episcopalian variant are noted in parentheses.

If you have anecdotal information on any changes made intentionally from the Book of Common Prayer Sunday Lectionary to the RCL Lectionary, we would love to have you leave a comment to share.

Beginning  Feb 27, 2011, all scripture lesson references will gradually be noted as a hyperlink to scripture text located at http://www.biblegateway.com .  The Rector has chosen the NIV (New International Version, rev. 2010) translation for normal use for Sunday lections at St John’s.   Each pew has two NIV bibles for reading along with the lessons.

[ Regarding the Psalter, the primary links for the Psalms here are also for the NIV translation. At St John's, unless the psalm has been "pointed" for singing by the congregation, we usually note the page number of the psalm from the Book of Common Prayer in the bulletin, and announce it. However, if you are looking for a digital Book of Common Prayer Psalter, it is also found online at a few sites, including formatted versions at Anglicans Online:
The Psalter, or Psalms of David (pg 585)
Psalms 1 - 75 RTF (1200K) WORD Doc (420K)
Psalms 76 - 150 RTF (1300K) WORD Doc (445K)
ALL -PDF (585K) . ]

If you would like to see the original RCL schedule, or review the various Sunday options, do an internet search for “Episcopal RCL”  and you will see several websites available.   The base RCL can be found at the Vanderbilt website.  [UPdate:  new BCP's are now including the RCL rather than the original Sunday lectionary.  And a Higher price, we might add ($20 for the pew edition as of 1/10/12).  And only available online ordering through the Methodist house publisher, Cokesbury.  We will continue to provide this space, however.]

John 17:1-11

Pentecost — June 12, 2011
Acts 2:1-21 (an option is Numbers 11:24-30, but then Acts 2 lesson must replace 1 Corinthians as the Epistle, since the Acts pericope describes the actual event of this feast day. I prefer on Pentecost to show cause and effect and policy, with Acts and 1Corinthians, rather than Old Testament precedence. There’s no reason, though, why Numbers can’t be brought into an introduction to the Acts lesson, or as a part of the sermon.)
Psalm 104:24-34,35b (be sure to match up NIV psalm verse numeration with the RCL intent, which usually follows the numeration of the RSV or NRSV. The BCP is also reliable comparison, despite RCL changes.)
1 Corinthians 12:3b-13
John 7:37-39 (an option is John 20:19-23)

The Feast of the Trinity
June 19, 2011
Genesis 1:1-2:4a

Matthew 28:16-20

June 26, 2011         The Second Sunday AFTER Pentecost,   Proper 8

Jeremiah 28:5-9 (It would seem that at this point following Trinity Sunday, you have the option of using the selection from Genesis 22:1-14, which would be from the “first track” of OT readings for the Sundays after Pentecost. Apparently, it is strongly suggested by the developers of the RCL that a congregation choose one or the other of the OT tracks and stick with that track for the year, and when Year A, for instance, comes rolling around again 2 years later, to use the “other track”. This would include matching psalm appointments. Right off the bat, we’re mixing things up by choosing the “track 1″ psalm and the “track 2″ OT reading. Well, according to the original rubrics in the BCP, that would be our prerogative.)
Psalm 13 (For liturgy purposes, I will always prefer a whole selection of sequential verses rather than a division of verses within a psalm. The applicable rubric makes such allowance, even if there is only one Psalm option for a Sunday)
Romans 6:12-23
Matthew 10:40-42 (note the loss of vv 37-39)
