Welcome!

The liturgical resources are organized using the Liturgical Calendar and listed by week in the Current Seasons. A Scripture Index is available from Textweek. Many of these resources are also listed by form as noted in the sidebar. You may also choose to search this site by topic.

Please Note:

This writer is in the midst of transition away from church, retiring from professional ministry and looking for the sacred in the new ways.  Her blog about the journey is here:  River Water, and in this article addresses the Liturgy Outside website.  For the time being, the Ponderings blog and this site will continue to be available. Your comments are welcome.
