Environmental Reflections Readings not in a Lectionary Year

In 1996, starting with Lectionary Year B, the MEESC launched a multi-year project to complete reflections and comments on the earth-centered aspects of the Standard (Episcopal) Lectionary readings. Major work on filling the gaps in this page is undertaken each time we are in a Lectionary Year.

With the introduction of the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) for regular use, some readings are no longer part of the regular use readings. In many cases we have an environmental reflection on that reading which we wish to make available to those seeking such. Also, sometimes contributors have been moved by what they have read (in a service, as part of a Bible study, etc.), that they have written a reflection. Both of these instances are captured here.

If you would like to contribute, please see the directions at the end of this page.
