Revised Common Lectionary

The Episcopal Church has authorized trial use of the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL), and I anticipate that we'll go over to it fully following the next General Convention in 2006. I've been blogging on the lectionary in the back of the Episcopal Church's Book of Common Prayer, mostly because the parish where I've worked up until now isn't using the RCL (I suggested that we consider it, but that didn't fly with the rectors we had up until April). But now I suppose I could blog on either lectionary, or (if time allows) on both, and while there's a lot of overlap between the two, the readings do diverge on some Sundays. What do you think?

Would you love it if I blogged on the RCL?
Would you hate it if I stopped blogging on readings that appear only in the Episcopal Church lectionary?

Yes, please work with the RCL! I'm in the process of preaching through Exodus, and any help I can get would be great!

I would be bummed if you were to not blog on the version of the lectionary my parish is using (currently BCP). I value your insights.

Please do both if you can, but if you can only do one do the BCP.

As a Canadian using the RCL, I'm delighted that you will be blogging the RCL version that we, and so many others beyond TEC, are now using. Your site is great and I always check it out. Thanks.

Often you cite previous sermons and commentairies on how you handled the scripture differently. I think it would be a nice feature to have a catalogue of your sermons and commentaries so we could look them up as needed.

Thanks for asking
