I've always been a big fan of the Old Testament--the stories showing God's power and patience, and the faith and failings of His people. These always caught my imagination and I never understood why so many thought of it as intimidating.
The Narrative Lectionary was created by professors at Luther Seminary in order to have readings throughout the year that focus on stories; on the narrative of God and His people, of His love and their missing the mark, and of His redemptive plan to restore them and bring them under his arms again. Each autumn the readings are from the Old Testament and in the spring they are from the New. The summers are left unscripted for each congregation to focus on other readings.
Many thanks to one of Word to Worship's users for letting me know about this and requesting I add it. I pray it will aid all those already using the lectionary and encourage others to take a look.
