Using the Lectionary as a flexible framework of texts for worship, while claiming our freedom to thoughtfully, prayerfully, and communally modify it to more effectively communicate the story of the Bible and form disciples sent into the world for God’s mission. Accepting the Revised Common Lectionary as an ecumenical gift for worship planning without being rigidly attached to it for every lesson every Sunday. That is what the Open Source Lectionary is all about.
This website grew out of my work on the Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Preaching program at Luther Seminary.
