Local lectionary sites

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter

Abstract

This chapter engages the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) through my eyes and musings as a native of Oceania, and calls for a supplementing Commoners' Lectionary which privileges the struggles of commoners in societies throughout. This supplementing lectionary would be inviting and open-ended, with several options, and engaging, with opportunities for worshippers to wade into the currents of welcome, lamentation and resistance. It would also embrace local texts, like the poem by Konai Helu-Thaman and the artwork by Emmanuel Garibay with which this chapter closes.
