Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path. Psalm 119.105 NRSV

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God...
And the Word became flesh and lived among us,
and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father's only son,
full of grace and truth. John 1.1-2, 14 NRSV

For I am not ashamed of the gospel;
it is the power of God for salvation
to everyone who has faith... Romans 1.16a NRSV

For the Church at Home

We offer devotional material for your coming week at home:

A key verse to savor
A set of daily readings based on the coming Sunday's texts
A familiar hymn to sing a few times
A catechism excerpt/another Lutheran theology connection

Please feel free to use these at your home or in your congregation and adjust them as you need to.

The bulletin insert may be emailed to you directly and is also posted at the Narrative Lectionary Google group. We provide them for every month.

Narrative Lectionary Resources
We all need a little refreshing on the stories and characters of the Bible, particularly the Old Testament. Even more, we need to hear their witness to God's merciful work of grace in our world and lives. Working with Luther Seminary, a number of congregations are adopting these readings this year to help us be more "fluent" in the biblical narrative. So we are calling this a "narrative" lectionary and will use it this fall, a different approach than the "Revised Common Lectionary" that we are more used to and will return to in December.

Below are the Sunday readings for this year. You may download them for use in your congregation as well. Or, if you miss a Sunday, you can pick up your readings here.
