Lectionary: August 27, 2017

In the church calendar, the season between Pentecost and Advent is wonderful for focusing on spiritual growth. Here are this week’s readings:

Exodus 1:8-2:10; Isaiah 51:1-6; Romans 12:1-8; Matthew 16:13-20

(A lectionary is a list of Bible readings, generally designed to provide a substantial reading of the Bible’s content during the course of a few years, often aligned with the seasons of the church year.)
