Every now and then I’ve provided some comments on the scripture readings from the Daily Office Lectionary. That’s something I will continue to do on an ad hoc basis, but with less urgency, as I am happy to share with you all a couple new resources out there to help people along in the process of reading the Bible according the 2019 Prayer Book’s plan.
First there’s The Daily Office Vlog, by Fr. Brian Barry who serves at Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church in Danvers, Massachusetts. (For those not in the know, “vlog” is a modern term for video log. “Web Log” –> “Blog” –> “Video Blog” –> “Vlog”) Like my videos, it’s nothing fancy, just cutting straight to the subject at hand. He comments on any or all of the four sets of readings in the Prayer Book, and is aiming to produce approximately one video per week, summarizing a week’s worth of readings in about ten minutes.
The other resource is a podcast from Adverseria, run by an Englishman named Alatair Roberts. He has been producing daily podcasts focusing on the two readings from Morning Prayer (currently Genesis and John), and I believe his goal is to cover the Evening Prayer readings next year, and/or to get to a point where he can provide a podcast study for every reading in the lectionary!
So if you want Bible Study aids that run concurrently with the lectionary, I heartily recommend the ministries of these two gentlemen.
