Turn the section of the lectionary you're working on into a PB as follows: Copy it and paste it into a Word .docx file. Insert Bible milestones that look like this in front of each verse: [[@Bible:Gen 1:1] (with the correct reference for each verse, of course). Then build a PB of type Bible using that .docx file, and voila. You've got your own little mini Bible with the texts for your sermon, and you can right-click on them and do all the things you'd be able to do in a Bible, especially run a Passage Guide. And you can link a commentaries to this PB and scroll them along as you work through the text. You can do all kinds of mark-up in it with notes and highlighting attached right to the verse, which you couldn't do in the Lectionary itself. (Of course you can do that in your full Bible too, but this way you've got all the texts together in one convenient place and you don't have to keep jumping all over your Bible between them.)
