This change takes effect on the First Sunday of Advent, Year A, in December, Like the Roman Catholic Lectionaryschedule of readings for congregational worship.

The Epistle and Gospel readings assigned in it are broadly identical to those familiar to us from the BCP.

The Roman Catholic lectionary did not generally do narrative justice to it; the Lectionary eir thematic connection with

So the RCL was formulated to address this fragmentation and neglect.Even so, through the first half of the liturgical year, from Advent through Eastertide, as in the 1969 Roman Catholic Lectionary.

This latter track pursues kingship (Year B), and the stories of Elijah, Elisha, and the Minor Prophets (Year C).

Each Hebrew Bible reading in both tracks also has a Psalm assignment that fits it What results in this “narrative track” may feel familiar to those accustomed to using the BCP’s Daily Office Lectionary.

Now a similar week-by-week continuity is availablwell—but it comes at the price of the thematic coherence within a given Sunday familiar from the Roman Catholic/BCP lectionary.Note that the two Ordinary Time tracks of the RCL are not like a weekly menu:

In the First Book of the Kings, Elijah’s encounters with the widow of Zarephath occupies most ofinto two episodes:

It is the other, more continuous track where things second of two installments from Ruth, David (recall that Year B follows the kingship narrative).
