Lectionary Commentaries

We are pleased to offer substantive care-for-creation reflections on the lessons for each Sunday in the Revised Common Lectionary. These commentaries are exegetically-based, theologically sound, creative in their ecological exploration of the text’s potential, and effective in articulation. The care for creation commentary is not an add-on, but an integral part of the exposition of the text itself. The purpose of this commentary is to provide a foundational resource for preachers and congregations seeking to incorporate care for creation into their worship and congregational life.

Thanks to our cohort of commentators (see their bios here).  Contact Katrina Martich, Commentary Coordinator, if you are interested, or know of someone else, who may want to join this cohort.
