The list below contains the New Testament Readings in the Lectionary for Sundays with a link to the pages for which the Environmental Stewardship Commission has prepared a reflection for readings in the Standard (Episcopal) Lectionary.  Also available are a list of Hebrew Scripture (Old Testament) Reflections and Reflections on the Psalms. Starting in October 2006 readings from the Revised Common Lectionary have been included.
