Ecumenical and Revised Common Lectionary
English and Spanish

The online Revised Common Lectionary is a project of the Vanderbilt University Divinity Library.

This online resource highlights the African American ecclesial traditions and moments that creatively express the joy, freedom, and the challenges of being both African American and Christian (e.g., Watch Night, African Heritage Sunday, Usher's Day, and Women's Day), while also drawing on the seasons of the liturgical year.

In this comprehensive resource site for preachers, I particularly recommend the Faculty Statement on Excellence in Preaching.

The Anglican Diocese of Montreal offers weekly readings from the Bible along with brief explanatory comments and background materials on the biblical books.

This website of Rev. Dr. Douglas K. Showalter of the United Church of Christ is a page for exchanging and sharing ideas, experiences, and readings on sermons, preaching, and worship with other preachers.

This is the subscription online service of Homiletics magazine

Bible studies and sermons are given for the Revised Common Lectionary, along with studies on theology, liturgy, and the Anglican church. Discussion questions are also provided.

Professor Bill Loader of the Uniting Church of Australia offers first thoughts on different passages from the Gospels in the Lectionary. These are not exegetical commentaries, although they include exegetical observations.

A blog by John McClure, Charles G. Finney Professor of Preaching and Worship at Vanderbilt University: available by email subscription.

This page boasts 140,000 free sermons, accessible by category, scripture, key word, topic, audience age, contributor, and denomination.

This subscription site, which may be explored by guests, gives exegesis, sermons, true stories, thought provokers, and hymns.

This ecumenical page includes links and general resources for each Sunday of the Revised Common Lectionary, including stories, movie connections, artwork, and reflections and questions to enhance prayer and study. Additional resources are included for the Roman Catholic, ELCA, and United Methodist lectionaries. This site now has partnered with ATLA, the American Association of Theological Libraries, to give key libary articles on the texts of the week.

Here is a preaching website by Luther Seminary (ELCA), St. Paul, Minnesota.
