The Revised Common Lectionary

In Luke 4:16-20, we note how Jesus engaged in the common practice of reading the text that was set for the day. This practice was continued in the early church, with different communities determining which texts should be read. Later, as the canon of Scripture (Bible) was edited into its final form, more effort was made by church authorities to unify what was read throughout the church.
Luke 4:16-20

There have been numerous lectionaries throughout the history of the church. More recently, these have been a three-year lectionary cycle, with three readings and a psalm for each Sunday. In each year one of the synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) predominates, with a semi-continuous approach to reading it, especially in ordinary time (the Sundays between Pentecost and Advent). Other books of the Bible are also read semi-continuously during appropriate seasons as well as in ordinary time. The lectionary is seasonal, but not often thematic. Some churches in the reformed tradition (including the Uniting Church) now use the Revised Common Lectionary.
