Online Resources

As Anglicans, we believe that we are formed by Word and sacrament.  There are a number of excellent online resources to help us engage with Scripture.

The Lectionary and the Daily Office

The Lectionary is the weekly cycle of readings for Sunday worship. The reading for next week's service are printed in Light and Life at St. John's, our bulletin insert, but if you would like to view them online, you can find them here: www.lectionarypage.net  or www.lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu/divinity.

The Daily Office, a two-year cycle of daily readings, along with the liturgies for Morning and Evening Prayer, are found here: www.missionstclare/english/.

The Daily office can also be downloaded for your Kindle or iPad each month.

Finally, you can view the Daily office readings in the ESV translation from their website at: www.esvbible/devotions/bcp/ or subscribe to a RSS feed here: feeds.feedburner.com/ESV-bcp. You can also view the Daily Office in a variety of translations, including The Message, at: www.biblegateway.com/reading-plans/bcp-daily-office/today.

Prayer

Pray as you go is a daily prayer session, designed for use on portable MP3 players, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc.  A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a 'Thought for the Day', a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer.  Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection.  It is produced by Jesuit Media Initiatives, with material written by a number of Jesuits, both in Britain and further afield, and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola. Although the content is different every day, it keeps to the same basic format. 

Sacred Space is another rich Jesuit offering that provides daily prayers and Scripture readings.  You can pray along with or without instrumental music.
