Abstract

If a church uses a lectionary as its guide for worship and preaching, how likely is it to address the problem of poverty? If it does address this question, toward what answers does the lectionary guide the preacher? Using the New Common Lectionary as a general guide, and with occasional references to the Roman Catholic Lectionary for the Mass, this study will ponder how the lectionary serves as a basis for sermons and services on poverty.
