Devotions and Readings

The practice of reading daily appointed Scripture passages dates back to Old Testament times. A lectionary provides a guide to individuals and groups who wish to read, study, and pray the Bible in tune with the church's prayer and preaching. A lectionary also shows the relationship of the readings of one Sunday with those that come before it and after it. Typically, a lectionary will go through the scriptures in a logical pattern, and include selections which were chosen by the religious community for their appropriateness to particular occasions. The Presbyterian Church (USA) uses a three-year lectionary. To see the PC(USA)'s Daily Lectionary, click here.

A catechism is a summary or exposition of doctrine, traditionally used in Western Christianity, and dating back to New Testament times. Using a catechism imparts doctrine in an organic and systematic way, with a view to initiating the hearers into the fullness of Christian life. To see the PC(USA)'s Daily Catechism, click here.
