Daily Devotions

        Many Christians devote a portion of their day to prayer, scripture and reflection. The term "Daily Office" means our daily service or                duty.

 

        From the United Church of Christ, lectionary based short, thoughtful reflections by UCC and other pastors. You can also sign up to                receive their daily email

 

      Daily prayer in a time of quarantine. Click the Menu button (looks like a box) in the upper right corner.

 

       Short guided reflections create a time-out for prayer

 

Bible Study Resources

 

       Well illustrated short videos about every Book of the Old and New Testaments created by the University of Nottingham (U.K.)

       Department of Theology and Religious Studies.

 

        For the Bible "nerd," a great tool for closely reading scripture. Includes Hebrew and Greek, various translations, links to lexicons,                  commentaries (the "oldies").

       Great site for teachers, preachers and the just-curious. A well "curated" selection of links follows the Revised Common Lectionary for the         liturgical seasons. Sites for art, music, movies, hymn choices, new commentaries, etc.

 

Theology of Work Project
"If God is the god of everything, your work matters to God." TOW offers articles and commentaries for Christians curious about the intersection of workplace and spiritual life. Conservative perhaps to some readers, just right for others. You decide.
