Dan Phillips writes about the public reading of Scripture, drawing on the exhortation in I Timothy 4.13 to devote ourselves to the public reading of Scripture, as well as to exhortation and teaching (in the pulpit, in songs &c.). He’s right that, compared to preaching, sacrament and corporate prayer, public Scripture reading gets relatively short shrift.
I wish that Scripture reading took more prominent place in CFC’s order of worship. Right now, if I asked anyone to name the sequence of things done in worship on Sundays, I think no one would name public Scripture reading among those things. Liturgy, liturgy, liturgy. Everyone has a lot to improve.
