In case you haven’t noticed, the ACNA has been revising its Daily Office Lectionary over the past year.
(You can access the latest versions of the ACNA liturgies here. If you want to learn more about what a Daily Office Lectionary is, read my introduction/guide here.)
In the next version of our Daily Office Booklet, I plan to adopt the official ACNA Daily Office Lectionary.
For now, however, I’ve taken the ACNA’s PDF and made it into a PDF that you can print at home (or at your church) as a booklet.
Just like with our Daily Office Booklets, make sure that you print two-sided, flipping each page on the short edge.
As you’ll see, the new ACNA lectionary can be used in either a one or a two-year cycle. As the instructions put it:
This Daily Office Lectionary may be adapted for use in a two-year cycle (indicated by I and II in the monthly headings) by reading only the two lessons appointed for Morning Prayer in odd-numbered years (e.g., 2019) and the two lessons appointed for Evening Prayer in even-numbered years (e.g., 2020). The two lessons each day may be divided across the two offices. In this way, the New Testament will be read through once each year, and the Old Testament will be read through in two years.
It also features a clever way of integrating the main feasts of the liturgical year into the civil calendar.
