The Center for Innovation in Ministry is excited to announce the Contributors’ Launch of the Living Lectionary.

The Living Lectionary is a collaboration between the Center, Convergence Network and Eric Elnes. Centered on the twelve Phoenix Affirmations of progressive Christian faith, the Living Lectionary is a crowd-sourced online resource that allows communities to draw on the entire narrative of Scripture at any time of the year. For worship and study, churches, small groups, and individuals follow a common set of twelve spiritual themes that engage some of the most compelling issues of our day. Users draw on scriptures of their own choosing, or suggested by others, to engage these themes.

The Living Lectionary is now open to contributors, which means that you can help shape this thoughtful and ever-evolving tool by contributing resources you’ve created. Submit sermons, curriculum, music, articles, artwork and more at

To announce and celebrate the launch, the Center held a luncheon for community leaders, pastors, and SFTS faculty, staff and students. Dr. Jim McDonald, President of SFTS, spoke to the importance and innovation of the Living Lectionary as churches move forward. Liz Huntington, Director of Marketing, and Sam Altis, Research Assistant, walked attendees through the site and answered questions about the project.
