The practice of using a Lectionary to assign particular Scripture readings to each Sunday and festival day (ie Christmas) dates back to the fourth century, and has continued through the history of the Christian Church.

In 1992, the Consultation on Common Texts (CCT) – an ecumenical consultation of liturgical scholars and denominational representatives from the United States and Canada, including some from the United Church of Christ – produced the Revised Common Lectionary. In 2005, the CCT published the Revised Common Lectionary DAILY Readings, which provides weekday readings that relate to the Sunday Scripture lessons. Thursday through Saturday readings help prepare the reader for the Sunday reading, and Monday through Wednesday readings help the reader reflect on what they heard at church.
