Thank you Philip for bringing this site to my attention.
This is a site for those who preach from the lectionary. It takes the text for the week and gives lots of background information and alternate translations to aid in Bible study, & lesson/sermon preparation.
I know an extremely small % of those who read at this site use the lectionary. I may do a post on here before long on the + & – of the lectionary before long. I have done quite a bit of looking into it but don’t use it myself. The major plus is that you preach a text that isn’t your pet-project text/your favorite. It forces you to think about texts that you would not normally preach and that is a good thing. Two big negatives: 1) Context 2)Canon within a canon – by only preaching lectionary texts you are limiting yourself to a small percentage of the canon. But, most people do that on their own any way so that may not be that big of a problem. Many people want to say there are agendas in the lectionary – feminism, for example. That is not totally accurate as texts that are more conservative on women’s roles are covered in the Revised Common Lectionary.
Anyway, lectionary or not have a look and enjoy the resources they have compiled. Thank you Philip, it will certainly help.
