Readings for this coming Sunday
Every Sunday and Holy Day service has its own set of readings according to a calendar of the Church Year. The calendar of Readings, or Lectionary, follows a three-year cycle; A, B, and C. The year which began at Advent 2017 and ends at the Sunday before Advent, 2018 is Year B.
During the three year Sunday lectionary cycle that begins on Advent Sunday, 2017 (Year B) and continuing until Advent Sunday, 201*, we at St. Andrew's will follow the "Track #2" option in the weeks after Trinity Sunday. (Track #1 includes Old Testament readings that follow a particular book in a more-or-less continuous way, while Track #2 includes Old Testament readings that are selected each week to relate thematically with the Gospel Reading.)
On Sundays when a choice of Old Testament, Epistle, or Gospel readings is offered, we will generally use the first option listed.
On the first, third, and fifth Sundays of the month, (and on Summer Sundays) when the order for the Holy Communion is followed, we will most often read the Epistle and Gospel readings for the day. On the second and fourth Sundays of the month, when the order for Morning Prayer is followed at our 11 a.m. service, we will most often read the Old Testament and Gospel readings for the day. On occasion, at the request of the preacher, the alternative "first reading" may be used.
At St. Andrew's we ordinarily use the Revised Standard Version as our English translation of the Bible on Sunday mornings and the Authorized or King James Version at Evensong and many special services.

Lord, thou hast given us thy Word for a light to shine upon our path;
grant us so to meditate on that Word, and to follow its teaching,
that we may find in it the light that shines more and more until the perfect day; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
—Jerome, c 342 - 420
