Tenth Sunday after Pentecost preparation

Ah! I thought I had posted this. So for the record . . .

August 21, 2011 is the tenth Sunday after Pentecost. So the collects are almost the same this week, save the end. The Corninthian lesson in the Revised Common Lectionary (through verse 17) is appointed for Lent 3C while the Luke 15 reading (from verse 1) would be read the next week at Lent 4C. That’s March 3 and 10, 2013 respectively. The Galatians lesson (in the RCL to verse 18, which is how I’ll read it) on Proper 9C, and the Luke 16 on Proper 20C. Or July 7 and September 22, 2013.
