It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Choice: Ascension or 7th Sunday

A couple of alternative are feasible for lectionary-following congregations this week. Some will celebrate the Ascension Thursday. Others will wait until Sunday.

On my theory of more Bible rather than less, I have included in this week's daily lectionary readings for Ascension (Acts 1:1-11; Psalm 47 or Psalm 110; Ephesians 1:15-23; Luke 24:44-53) and for the 7th Sunday after Easter( Acts 16:16-34; Psalm 97; Revelation 22:12-14, 16-17, 20-21).
