During a Sunday morning service, we usually hear three readings from the Bible’s Old and New Testaments. We use the New Revised Standard Version, widely acclaimed and supported as a Bible for all Christians — Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Orthodox.
Book of Common Prayer
The Book of Common Prayer, one of the major works of English literature since its first edition in 1549, contains liturgies, prayers, theological documents, and more.
The latest edition of the Episcopal Hymnal presents classic texts and a prophetic vision, aiming to address the church of the future as well as the present. It covers all major historical periods, reflecting and speaking to a variety of cultures.
Revised Common Lectionary
The Revised Common Lectionary, used in common by mainline Protestant churches, presents Scriptural readings for Sundays and Holy Days throughout the year. Sunday lessons typically include a reading from the Hebrew Bible, a Psalm, a reading from the Epistles, and a Gospel reading.
