      As an aside, the Joint Liturgical Group (on which the 'major'
      denominations in the British Isles are represented) came up with a
      four-year scheme about 10 years ago, or thereabouts. But this did not
      catch on, and most of the churches which had followed the JLG's
      early-1970s-ish 2-year scheme (which did not follow any particular
      gospel) have mostly abandoned it for the RCL. The four-year scheme was I
      believe, largely the work of the then United Reformed Church minister in
      this town, Donald McIlhagga, thoroughly revised by his fellow members of
      the JLG.
