It’s the Fourth Thursday of Easter in the Church Calendar. May 4, 2023.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. Singing a song I wrote with Joanne Chantelau, “Mover of Mountains,” with a prayer of confession. We’ll read Psalm 50 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is Luke 6:39-49 . We’ll say the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Collect of the Day. We’ll then have a time of prompted prayer.
Fourth Sunday of Easter – O God, whose Son Jesus is the good shepherd of your people: Grant that when we hear his voice we may know him who calls us each by name, and follow where he leads; who, with you and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
