EDIT: My original post was way off... sorry for those who already read it. After posting this I'm going to pick up my coffee, get back to work on tomorrow's message, & stay off the forums for awhile. Smile

Add my vote to those who've asked for improved navigation in lectionaries.

At  minimum, we need a "today" button that goes to the nearest entry to today. In addition, with the entire year scrollable, the scroll bar isn't useful--there just isn't enough mouse sensitivity to move a small enough increment to scroll within this week's entries.

Lastly, I noticed that the RCL L3 lectionary for 11/22 has two colors (proper / green +Christ the King / white) whereas the RCL L4 lectionary has only one color. Is there a reason for the difference?

Thanks for listening!

Grace & Peace,
Bill

Good catch. Actually I am always bemused by the colors in the RCL because the colors are tradition dependent and, in some cases, geographically dependent.

L3 displayed a color for the season and a color specific to the celebration. This was eliminated as it seemed either redundant (where they were the same) or confusing (where they weren't the same).

I have to admit that I'm unsure what the source was originally for the colors we have associated with the RCL in our resource. It is certainly true that there is plenty of variation among the many churches that use the RCL or derivatives of it. I would think that there's enough commonality in the western liturgical tradition that it's still worthwhile to keep them, but if we hear from enough people that they're just misleading or inaccurate, we'll certainly consider removing or adjusting them.

Hi Louis,

My comment was more on the difference, not the accuracy...

Agreed! and thanks!

I would vote to keep them even if I am bemused by them. I think most people actually involved in worship planning have the sense to check for their own tadition. And many of the lectionaries you are apt to have, carry the color in their lectionaries  printed in their hymnals.
