The Girardian Lectionary Study (GLS) discusses the lectionary readings each week for the following Sunday led by Paul Nuechterlein (and occasional friends). In my 30-year career as a parish pastor I always valued time with colleagues for a weekly "Pericopes Study."

The options for subscriptions are $6.00 for a single session (use the "Pay Now" button below); a regular subscription of $22.00/month (which is $5.08/week); or a "Student"/Young Person's rate of $15.00/month for those ages 18-35 (aware that getting established financially in today's unjust economics is challenging
— and that this lectionary conversation welcomes the voice of the generation most missing from church). The monthly subscription renews automatically each month with PayPal; but participants may unsubscribe (using the button below) at any time and will receive a pro-rated refund if appropriate.
