Making the Connections from Lectionary Lessons to Christian Living
Beginning with Ash Wednesday and proceeding to Palm/Passion Sunday, we’ll attend first to the Psalm and Old Testament Lesson for each day, using them as points of departure toward the Gospel and Epistle Lessons. Recorded musical versions of the Psalms will be interspersed to provide variety as well as a few moments to meditate on the Psalm for the day.
