Lectionary Error for June 17

April 12, 2012

There is an error in the official United Methodist Revised Common Lectionary as printed in the Book of Worship. Since it was printed in the Book of Worship, the error has found its way into numerous lectionary-based publications and resources.

The error is on page 233 of the Book of Worship, Year B, the "Sunday between June 12 and June 18 inclusive." The Psalm appointed for that day is listed as Psalm 20 or Psalm 72 (UMH 795). The correct citation should be Psalm 20 or Psalm 92 (UMH 811). That Sunday comes up this year on June 17, 2012.
