This is the first of a three-volume lectionary resource that weaves together a rich tapestry of quotations, meditations, poems, and prayers by classic and contemporary spiritual writers. Each volume links with the lectionary readings for Sundays and for important festival days such as Christmas, Easter and Pentecost. Anyone who is concerned with preaching on Sunday, or leading study groups or prayer groups during the course of the week, can find here something to feed personal reflection, to stimulate ideas for sermon themes, and to provide stories and poems as well as prayers that in some way relate to the biblical readings for the day concerned.
