Lectionary

Hi, Linda,

No, there are not Lectionary-specific lessons. Because the Rotation Model focuses on ONE story over 4-6 weeks or so and the Lectionary changes to a new story each week, we have not developed lessons that "follow" the Lectionary.

That said, one church in which I served wanted to coordinate between worship and study by choosing to study ONE story out of a 4 week series in the Lectionary. Often the Lectionary will include a series of related stories, making this process a little more user-friendly. Then we would select from the lesson sets available on this site to study that story over the 4 week period. In effect, we were using the Lectionary as a guide for creating our "scope and sequence."

Folks who are convinced in the repetitive value of the Rotation Model can choose to "follow" the Lectionary in this way. Before using the Rotation Model, I would ask our classes in June which was their favorite story. Many blank stares or Christmas or Easter responses (stories they already knew) predominated. A few might remember one of the very recent stories we had told in May. After we began "Rotating," there was usually a lively argument over which story had been a favorite--going all the way back to fall.

The results were quite revealing. I'm convinced that both the repetition and the dramatic, active lesson plans available here make the stories much more memorable and greatly increase Bible literacy. Clearly, I'm prejudiced since I've been involved with Rotation for 20 years, but that's also a lot of experience to support that confidence.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you'd like some help exploring this idea. Many blessings on your ministry,

Anne
