The ELC Lectionary Blog

Exploring God’s Word!

My name is Paul Rykken and I am among those who lead adult studies at Evangelical Lutheran Church in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. We started the Lectionary Blog as an outgrowth of an adult study we did in January of 2023. And, yes, I am an “Old Lutheran,” who grapples with the challenge of living the Christian faith day to day. The ELCA follows the Revised Common Lectionary for both its daily and Sunday reading plan. “Faithful Conversations” is a weekly reflection on the Lectionary readings for the upcoming Sunday (Year A 2022-23). While I will author and monitor the weekly blog, our intention is to include others as well. Our goal is to inspire ongoing engagement in God’s word among our parishioners. If you would like to be on our mailing list and receive the blog in your inbox on Wednesday mornings, simply send me your email address and I will add you to the list (note my email below).  

Thanks for your interest in adult education!
