​What is the Revised Common Lectionary?

The RCL is a three-year cycle of recommended weekly scripture lessons. It is used in varying degrees by a great number of mainline Protestant churches in Canada and the United States. The RCL is built around the seasons of the Church Year, and includes four lections for each Sunday.

There are generally four readings for each Sunday: 1) a reading from the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), 2) a Psalm, 3) a reading from the Epistles, and 4) a Gospel reading.
