Soon, but Not Yet
Soon, we'll start doing more Biblical analysis.
As I'm not an expert (and I don't speak Hebrew, Latin, or Greek, only knowing some words in each language), I'll do my best to rely on people who are experts in those languages and refer back to the original language when possible as we look at various meanings of Biblical passages and try to place them both in their historical context along with finding inner and mystical meanings of the passages.
Another thing we'll have to do is seek out which lectionary we want to use and allow for the use of things like the non-canonical Scriptures, which have a great value in and of themselves, if only for the reason of expanding our minds on what constitutes the Christian Tradition as a whole.
Look forward to it!

On thing I love about the ACSC is the freedom the celebrants have to choose their own readings . In my case while I used to constrain myself to the Liberal Catholic Lectionary because it contains only mostly edyfying and mystical parts of the Bible , I feel now more free to bring in texts from other sources like the writings of the Unity Church which are Christian metaphysics , or the gnostic gospels etc , because as Humanity has progressed our understanding of spirituality must too . Some of the old texts need a new more open minded exegesis , because anyways they never went meant to be taken 100 % literal. But yes an ACSC lectionary that gives some options relating to the Sunday Intentions and the feasts , will be a great thing to have .
