Readings - Sunday, 27 June 2021 – Fifth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B (Proper 8)

Note: There are two sets of first readings (with accompanying Psalms) given for the Sundays after Pentecost: (a) a new semi-continuous set, and (b) a set related thematically to the gospels (as in the earlier form of the lectionary). It is intended that either one of these two sets be used throughout and that they not be mixed.

a) 2 Samuel 1:1,17-27 David mourns for Saul and Jonathan
b) Lamentations 3:22-33 The Lord’s goodness and mercy will not fail
