As in prior years, I'm sharing the global daily lectionary "Die Losungen" (Daily Texts, Moravian Daily Watchwords) for the upcoming year. This small lectionary consists of a daily OT verse - randomly drawn from a pool of texts in German language - and accompanying NT verse that may help to illustrate. The Daily Texts are printed uninterrupted in its 290th year, now in some 60 languages, and used globally by millions of people - now you can utilize them in Logos as well.

Here is the file: 4745.Die Losungen 2020.docx

The file needs to be compiled as type:lectionary and language:German, but it will work with your favorite bible or any other you select due to dynamic text fields - in the screenshot below I selected the LEB. If you already use the 2019 version, just add the file and recompile the PB.

In Logos 8 you may create a tile on the homepage (not much functionality, more of a reminder)

I have added the yearly, monthly and weekly / special day texts as well - the latter are often used in the liturgy as a so called "Votum" in German language services (even in non-liturgical churches).

The text selection copyright is owned by the Evangelische Brüder-Unität - Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine, the text source and further information is available at http://www.losungen.de - the 2017 German Luther bible text is most often used (copyright by the German Bible Society), sometimes other translations such as Zürcher, Gute Nachricht, Einheitsübersetzung are used. The yearly and monthly texts have been selected by the ecumenic committee for bible reading, http://oeab.de , the weekly texts originated in the protestant community "Michaelsbruderschaft" in the 1920s and have been updated in the recent lectionary reform in Germany.

Enjoy and have a blessed 2020!
