The Pastor’s Workshop has created a worship resource focused on the Revised Common Lectionary, starting with Year B. Resources will include a summary of the text, as well as curation of content from the TPW library. This includes sermon illustrations, quotes, and liturgy.

Longer, more developed commentary on the text will be given to major seasons in the life of the church (Advent, Lent), which will involve the AIM methodology first employed in 2020’s Advent Sermon Series (Learn more here).
