Narative Lectionary Fall 2018

The narrative lectionary respects the traditional Christian church year, with its principal seasons
— Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost. It also respects the rhythms of the school
year. During the fall, the Old Testament texts will be the primary scripture for proclaiming the
biblical story during Sunday morning worship. These same texts will be used in Preschool,
Elementary, and Middle School Sunday School classes.
