As promised, this post will provide links to some of the best online resources connected to the lectionary.
The first post gave the history of the lectionary. The second post highlighted advantages of using the lectionary.
One of the huge advantages is that the lectionary has such a wealth of supporting resources. This post will highlight some of these.

I am sure this is only skimming the surface of what is available to enrich lectionary-based worship – online and generally free. A larger collection of links is provided in my worship and lectionary links section of this site. If you have a site related to spirituality and worship and have linked to this site – please let me know. If appropriate I link back to provide as good as possible list of resources for visitors to this site.
