I have planned a Lectionary Study of the Bible for the fall.  The following table shows the lectionary readings for each Sunday, and the readings we will examine each Tuesday from 10 until noon at St. Andrew’s Centre.  I will have printed copies of this chart available for anyone who would like one.   Here’s a PDF to download also: September 10 to November 26 2017 Lectionary Study
