Great resource for weekly preparation for worship or meditation on the previous week’s worship.

I’ve looked through a ton of lectionary podcasts and this is my favorite for several reasons- Great blend of pastoral and lay voices, male and female, background on the lectionary and church calendar/seasons. Their conversation each week is so genuine and strikes the right balance between the theological and practical aspects of the texts. Plus you get the collect for that week as well.

A little odd that they discuss the readings in reverse order that you would hear them on a Sunday. And sometimes the podcast is recorded and/or released a week or more before the Sunday it is intended for. But neither issue takes away from the many benefits this podcast has. Highly recommend!

My favorite time of week!

What a nourishing gift this podcast is to my week! Each episode feels like a personal conversation with Fr. Aaron and Marissa over the week’s Scriptures. Their insights get me thinking, and their curiosity and wonder about the Bible encourage my faith. Highly recommend subscribing!!
