Behold, I tell you a mystery

I love that I work in a place where this is funny...

AJA, our rector at CSMSG, stood up to give his sermon today and began with this anecdote.

"Today before I give the sermon, we're going to learn a great lesson about how God is a mystery. This week, the General Convention passed a resolution that we are no longer going to use the Episcopal lectionary, but instead something called the Revised Common Lectionary, which most mainline churches have used for years. They're nearly the same, but a little different in some places...

Our esteemed lector today read the lesson appointed for next Sunday in the Episcopal lectionary, but for today in the Revised Common Lectionary.

The real mystery is that your rector prepared a sermon on that same lesson... God is a mystery."
