Lectionary: January 7, 2018 Baptism of the Lord

In the church calendar, the Season of Epiphany remembers the coming of the wise men bringing gifts to visit the Christ child and is a time to reflect on Christ’s early years of ministry.   Here are this week’s readings:

Genesis 1:1-5; Psalm 29; Acts 19:1-7; Mark 1:4-11

(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.)
