As you may know, I have been working on a series of 3 short meditations on this week’s lectionary readings for Lent & Beyond. To do this I’ve been working off the RCL as found here. This is the Lectionary used by the Episcopal Church of the USA. What’s fascinating is the texts for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Here they are.
Monday 19 June 2006, Rom 1:1-15
Tuesday 20 June 2006, Rom 1:16-25
Wednesday 21 June 2006, Rom 1:28-2:11
Anyone spot what’s missing?
Here it is.
Romans 1:26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Irony? You betcha.
