Historic Lectionary Bulletin Covers Coming in 2013-14

I got word today that CPH will indeed be offering full color bulletin covers for the Historic Lectionary featuring classic artwork starting with the 2013-14 church year. This is a project that lovers of the Historic Lectionary from all corners have been seeking for some time and I'm very glad that CPH has been so responsive to those requests. The project is in the capable hands of the same team that gave us the Treasury of Daily Prayer. As they get the apparatus in place to take orders, I'll post information in this space.

  1. Excellent. The recent bulletin cover of two people staring at a clump of grass had me shaking my head.

  2. Hopefully they will offer them on both legal- and letter-sized paper.

  3. Thanks, Pr. Curtis, for your leadership in helping CPH "think different" about how to go about exploring this possibility. Previously, when we surveyed about interest, we got all bogged down in the fact that there is a great deal of diversity among historic lectionary users when it comes to their choice of Bible translation: KJV, NKJV, ESV, RSV, AAT, NIV, NASB ... so many we could not offer a bulletin line with lessons printed on the back.

    You helped us realize: forget trying to print a particular Bible translation on the back, leave it blank so folks can do whatever they want.

    So, on that basis, this project may well work.

    We do hope that more people who indicated they would definitely "buy it" if we do it pick it up once it launches.

    Sorry, Jason, we have no plans for legal size at this time, only letter size.

    We are also going to be very interested to see if other liturgical churches might not also want to use this bulletin series. There may be interest in the historic lectionary among Anglicans and others.

    We shall see.

  4. Rats, I wish there was an "edit" function on this blog commenting system.

    Correction:

    We hope that more people buy it than only the folks who said they would on the survey. We suspect once it is up and running there will be more interest.

    In the interim ... while folks are deciding what they can do ... I suggest that the blank space be filled with Judges 17:6.

    Or not.

    I mean, you folks could just decide to go wild, and choose Judges 21:25 instead.

    Of course, if you do elect to follow any of these prescriptions, the choice of the selection's translation could well represent an agonizing problem for the obsessively ruminating, out there.

    Or not.

    It's pretty much up to your "own eyes" (KJV), after all.

    Actually, there is ... and it effectively separates those impulsive, Joyceian "the-world-will-surely-hang-on-every-precious-burp-of-my-stream-of-consciousness" types, from those taking the time to click on a "Preview" button.

  7. FWIW, I'd be very happy with a legal size...I would think that would be the case with most.
