Original Post
Thanks Lisa for posting something truly unique.

For those of you unfamiliar with some of the "code" on her list... its the Lectionary which several major denominations follow. The lectionary is split into 3 year cycles: A B C.

Lisa's Scope and Sequence allows you to cross reference Lectionary resources, and lectionary based curriculum to this Scope and Sequence.

<>< Neil
Is "unique" Roll Eyes good or bad?

I should add that the lectionary was only one piece in determining where we placed a story. Our first consideration was to place the stories we considered most important at a high attendance period. Wherever possible this corresponds to the lectionary.

Sometimes what we considered important stories came up in the lectionary when attendance was low. In that case we tried to place the story earlier in the year so that when we got to that reading in church, kids' ears would perk up and they'd think "oh, I know that."

Sundays are more closely tied to the lectionary than Wednesdays.

The numbers on the far left are just our way of coding the information for filing purposes.

Peace,
Lisa
