The African American Lectionary is a resource tool that not only 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), but also recognizes days on the liturgical calendar that are celebrated across a variety of ecclesial traditions (e.g., Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost).
The Narrative Lectionary is a four-year cycle of readings. On the Sundays from September through May each year the texts follow the sweep of the biblical story, from Creation through the early Christian church.
from Stephanie Smith, "This site has been especially helpful for internships throughout seminary. It gives a whole array of liturgy resources written for the lectionary passages that are fresh and creative. The liturgy can can be accessed by season, topic, or alphabetically, so the page can be easily maneuvered whether you are following the lectionary or not. I have found this page to be my #1 go-to for worship resources."
Recommended for: Pastors, Theologians, Theological Students. The ATLA Religion Database is an essential tool for the study of religion. It is the premier index to journal articles, book reviews, and collections of essays in all fields of religion. The fact that many publishers solicit the inclusion of their journals in the ATLA Religion Database is indicative of the stature it has achieved in the community of religion scholars.
