Instructions: This site is indexed according to the Revised Common Lectionary, an assignment of Scripture readings to the various days of the church year calendar (e.g., the First Sunday in Advent). There are separate pages of reflections and sermons for most (though not yet all) church year dates.

Below is an itemized list for each particular Lesser Festival. Simply click in the appropriate titled box for either the reflection page or the sermon page. The titles are listed with their specific calendar dates.

Note: anything still in black lettering does not yet have a finished page linked to it; don't forget, however, that you may need to click Reload or Refresh for the most up-to-date page.
