Summer Lectionary Series 2020
The Festival Scrolls
hosted by BibleWorm

 This summer series is being hosted by the BibleWorm podcast with Amy Robertson and Robert Williamson Jr. It can be done as a 10-week series, as in the schedule below, or adapted to the needs of the congregation (e.g., a 5-week series with one week on each book). The series draws on Williamson’s book The Forgotten Books of the Bible: Recovering the Five Scrolls for Today (Fortress Press, 2018), which you may find helpful for your preaching. There is also a free study guide to the book available for download, which might be useful for Sunday School or book club discussions.
