In Sunday worship, the lector is responsible for reading the first and second lessons and for leading the congregation in reading the Psalm responsively. At other services, the duties may vary, but they will always involve reading the Scripture. This is one of the most significant parts of any worship service, and it is important to prepare so that you can read well. Here are a few tips.
1. Take the time to read the lessons and the Psalm ahead of time. How do you know what the lessons are for your Sunday? You can find them on the here on the ELCA website. You will need to scroll down to find the correct year. The readings are divided into the seasons of the church year; calendar dates are also given. If you don't have access to the web or if you have questions, please contact Deacon Linda or the church office.
2. Practice reading out loud. That way you will be able to divide the phrases properly and find anything that might trip you up.
3. If your reading includes some names that you aren't sure how to pronounce, NetMinistries has an on-line pronunciation guide where you can hear the words pronounced. Once again, if you have questions, ask Deacon Linda or Pastor Gerry.
4. It is best to read slowly and clearly. If you get lost in the reading, just stop and restart.
5. Make sure that the microphone is on and in the proper position BEFORE the service starts, if possible.
