We developed two bonus podcasts to explore history and meaning of the Revised Common Lectionary and the Christian Liturgical Year. These podcasts provide the listener with foundational information. In this first podcast, Michele outlines a brief history of the Revised Common Lectionary and some exploration of the definition of a lectionary in general.
In this second bonus podcast, Samuel Felderman explores the Christian Liturgical Calendar which is the foundation for the Revised Common Lectionary.
Enjoy! And please feel free to post comments and ask questions. We enjoy a good online conversation!
