A three-year cycle of scriptures used to varying degrees by the vast majority of mainline Protestant churches in Canada and the United States, and is built around the seasons of the Church Year. The readings for each Sunday include a reading from the Hebrew Bible, a Psalm, a reading from the Epistles, and a Gospel reading.
Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday reading, and Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on what they heard on Sunday.
