Our weekly readings for worship follow the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL), a three-year cycle of Bible readings used worldwide in churches of many denominations. These include the United Church of Christ and the Church of Scotland as well as Anglican, Methodist, Roman Catholic and other churches. This sign of practised unity means that throughout the world, Christians gathered for worship in many different churches focus on the same passages of Scripture on any given Sunday. http://www.gbod.org/site/c.nhLRJ2PMKsG/b.7741657/k.EA50/Revised_Common_Lectionary__20122013.htm
