Holy Eucharist, Rite II
As we enter the Season after Pentecost, we face an immediate choice between following "Track I" (where the 1st Lesson and Psalm are selected to provide historical narratives of King David and his successors) or "Track II" (where the 1st Lesson and Psalm are chosen to complement the Gospel reading).
At St. Elizabeth's we follow Track I in order to provide a better survey of Holy Scripture. We begin with the calling of the Prophet Samuel. Any discussion of the Kings must include the Prophets who guided them.
Readings for Proper 4, Track I, Year B
1 Samuel 3:1-20
