Lectionary Radio

During my "Easter fast" I came up with the idea to start a podcast. The idea? I just read the coming Sunday's assigned lessons and provide a short comment. It does not sound hard, but it did take a good amount of work to put together, particularly in figuring out RSS feeds, and offering MP3 as well as Ogg Vorbis. But I digress . . .

Lectionary Radio IconI am pleased to present Lectionary Radio, a weekly podcast featuring the coming Sunday's scripture readings from the Revised Common Lectionary and discussion of those passages. The show will be published some time in the middle of each week so folks can have some time to listen to it before church on the weekend. I hope to interview guests in the future, but for now it is just me. The show is distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-alike license.

The audio quality is a bit questionably due to the first episode being recorded on my Sansa Clip. I'll see about better options for recording. In the course of editing I found that I say "ummm" a lot and have a rather stilted, Shatner-esque pacing to my impromptu speaking. Consequently I may just prepare a script for future episodes.

Please comment or email with feedback. Thanks!

(Yes, I know it is not Pentecost yet, so I have sorta broken my Easter blogging fast. But at least the first episode of Lectionary Radio has readings for Pentecost!)
