Lectionary Class Offerings

Meeting in Room 234 at 9:30 a.m.

 

The lectionary is a pre-selected collection of scriptural readings from the Bible that can be used for worship, study or other theological uses.  Catholic, Anglican, Methodist and other congregations use the Revised Common Lectionary, which follows the liturgical year in a 3-year cycle and provides scriptural recommendations that complement the current season of the liturgical year.  You can find the Lectionary scriptures for any given Sunday, by going to: lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu/.

 

 Members of the class share leadership, facilitating discussion which can be anything from thought provoking to humorous and everything in between.  Leadership sharing is voluntary; some of us take turns leading, we all take turns sharing our perspectives on the readings.  As we listen to each other’s perspectives, we can see the scriptures from other viewpoints. Each Sunday, we have learned that what we understand the scripture to mean can be very different from the understanding of those sitting next to us.  This is not a lecture class; this is an interactive learning opportunity.  Visitors and new members are welcome any and every Sunday. Come once, come twice, come every week and get to know the Scriptures one bite at a time.
