Resources for Preachers

For Preachers and Leaders

Messages, Writing-the-Message

Welcome to all you preachers, Bible-study leaders or the just plain curious.  If you need to give a message, homily or sermon then I hope you will find these posts helpful.  I am starting with messages for the remainder of the current church year (Year B), but I will be adding more week by week.

Revised Common Lectionary

These sermons are organised using the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL).  This is a three-year calendar of Bible readings used by many churches.  Each year the RCL cycles through the Christian year – seasons of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Easter & after Pentecost.  Some churches label Sundays between Trinity Sunday and Advent as ‘Ordinary’ or ‘Proper’ Sundays.

If you want to know how Bible books relate to the readings in the RCL, a helpful resource is the Reverse Lectionary.  This shows when Bible readings appear in the cycle.

Finding Sermons without the RCL

However, you don’t need to use the RCL at all, you can just find a sermon on any book of the Bible by using the category of the post (on the left).  Or you can see all posts on My Blog.
