GUC has traditionally followed the The Revised Common Lectionary (RCL). The long established liturgical rhythms are followed by churches all over the world and give us a pattern by which we shape our worshipping year.
Each week the RCL offers us a Psalm, a reading from the Hebrew Scriptures, A Gospel reading and an Epistle reading.
Many find the practice of following the RCL helpful as it offers a place to begin and takes the “me” out of the equation and asks to focus on a particular reading.
Instead of focussing on whatever issue has grabbed my attention for the week the RCL inspires us to explore the scripture and gives us something to work with.
While you’re not required to follow the RCL we would ask that you discuss themes or topics with Darren if you do choose to follow your own theme.
