The Episcopal Lectionary
Throughout the year as part of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we celebrate the many wonderful forms of God’s children. We use the Episcopal Lectionary for our weekly citations, and pursue more inclusive text through the Oremus Bible Browser.
We continue to use the St. Helena Psalter which removes the male pronouns used for God. Other language choices in the liturgy work to move us away from the male imagery used for God, including optional choices in the Lord’s Prayer. While this language may seem uncomfortable for some, it is eye-opening for others. If you have questions about our language choices and uses, please contact the Rev. John A. Mennell at Mennell@slechurch.org
