For the year that we’ve been posting our Lectionary Links, a common refrain has been the request to post them earlier to make it easier to get the books that are suggested. That has been pretty difficult to do up until this time. We’re happy to announce, however, that beginning next Friday, August 5, we will begin the move towards having everything posted a month in advance.
For the next two Fridays, we will be posting TWO Lectionary Links each week. On August 5, our wonderful regular contributor Noell Rathbun will offer suggestions for August 21 and Dr. Pamela Mitchell-Legg, professor at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Charlotte (and mover and shaker who got this blog going) will provide the links for August 28.
On August 12, we are happy to introduce Lectionary Links written by recent Union Presbyterian Seminary graduate Sara Anne Berger. Sara Anne did a directed study that resulted in thirteen weeks of Links and we’re delighted to share them with you. Her offerings for September 4 and September 11 will be posted on August 12.
And then we’ll be just where you’ve asked us to be! We hope this change in our posting schedule that provides everything a month in advance will help you locate books that you’d like to have in a more timely manner.
(We’d also like to highlight a suggestion that Noell recently made on the blog about using http://www.worldcat.org to see if any libraries near you have a book we mention. It’s easier if you create an account so WorldCat knows your location, but you can always identify your location later in the search process if you don’t create one. Seeing if libraries near you have a book may make it easier to request an interlibrary loan if your own local library doesn’t have a copy.)
We are gratified by the support and encouragement you’ve offered us here. Blessings on your ministries.
