Dear Nathan,

On behalf of the Consultation on Common Texts, I hereby grant permission for Nathan Nettleton, Pastor, South Yarra Community Baptist Church, Melbourne, Australia to publish the Revised Common Lectionary table or portions thereof on his web site, Laughingbird.net. I grant this permission with the following understandings:

1. that this constitutes permission for this web site only.

2. that the lectionary table or any portion of the it be accompanied by the following copyright and permission notice:

From [or Adapted from] The Revised Common Lectionary. Copyright (c) 1992
by the Consultation on Common Texts (CCT), P. O. Box 340003, Room 381,
Nashville, TN 37203-0003, USA. Used with Permission.

Note, the bracketed portion should be used if you adapt the table in some way. If the table is adapted in any way, we request that you inform the reader of the RCL reading listed along with the variation.

3. that, when and if you decide to include the tables in any other publications or electronic media, that you write or email this office describing what you intend to do and request permission. I will then respond to that request. We are in the process of formalizing our copyright matters with Augsburg Fortress Press, and so, may refer future requests to them.

The RCL has received wide acceptance throughout the English speaking world and is beginning to be adopted by an number of churches in non-English speaking settings. CCT is pleased that you want to engage pastors and people with the Bible in this way.

If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact me.
