When I compare the one year in LSB to the one year in TLH, I see that in LSB you have the option of Baptism of our Lord for the 1st Sunday after the Epiphany and of Transfiguration for the Last Sunday before Septuagesima. I see that this same custom appears in the three year lectionary for the beginning and end of Epiphany.
What does this tell me? That the one year has adapted to that practice because it found it to be a good one. Generally I agree, however I'm a little bit troubled by the fact that it makes the other Epiphany lections so exceedingly rare.
My answer to that question is: Yes, and therefore I can't sign the document.
I could be wrong about that. I do think that Christians can reasonably disagree on the answer to the question. But since my answer is "Yes," signing the document ceases to be an option for me.
I'm not looking forward to this year. I'm *almost* glad I don't get to see many Broncos games. Sadly, I don't think the Steeler fans around here don't have anything to worry about when they play the Broncos this year.
