God With Us: How we developed the lectionary

Cover-God With Us-new cover website

If you’ve taken a look at the Table of Contents link for God With Us, you may be curious to know how we chose texts for the daily sermons in Advent. At Redeemer Lutheran Church, we follow the historic one-year series, and it is our custom to preach on the Gospel text for Sunday’s Divine Service. We have simply carried the theme from Sunday’s propers to the rest of the week, with the week’s Introit, Old Testament, or Epistle text forming the basis of the weekday sermon. There is also a series on the Lucan canticles: the Benedictus, the Magnificat, and the Nunc Dimittis. The remaining days of Advent are comprised of the unique Epistles and Gospels for the Wednesdays and Fridays in Advent and also the saints’ days that fall in December. Thereafter come sermons for the twelve days of Christmas, Sundays in Epiphany up to the Transfiguration, and other saints’ days that fall in January and February.
