A Primer for Lectors

Length: 18 pages20 minutes


A Primer for Lectors guides the inexperienced church reader or lector. It can be used in any type of church setting in which the Word of God is proclaimed and has not been approved by any official group. (Then again, it hasn’t been condemned, either.) Using plain language and typical readings for a Sunday in Ordinary Time (taken from the King James Version), the text lays out each step of the process, from initial reading of the text, through finding and de-fusing the “landmines,” to leading the congregation in psalms, and the actual Sunday performance. Breaking the process down into its steps, Primer helps the lay reader move from terror of the unknown to a calm cooperation with the Holy Spirit. The result is a more joyful and meaningful church experience for all.
