SAMUEL is a sermon preparation resource designed for use with the Revised Common Lectionary. Each week, you’ll find that Sunday’s lectionary texts and “Sermon Seeds,” a reflection on the focus text from the Seasons of the Spirit curriculum. Each week, Sermon Seeds are also adapted as “Weekly Seeds” on ucc.org for Bible study in the local church and for personal devotion and study. Along with the text and reflection, you’ll find a prayer, additional thoughts for reflection, and focus questions for discussion.
The United Church of Christ participates in the Consultation on Common Texts, which has designed the Revised Common Lectionary. For more information on the lectionary, go to commontexts.org.
Music for the psalm and antiphon are available in The New Century Hymnal, plus a complete index of hymns appropriate for each Sunday's lectionary readings. To purchase the Hymnal, call 1-800-325-7061 or simply click here.
