1 February 2015 (Candlemas)

February 1 has the Principal Feast of “The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple (Candlemas)” which can be observed on the Monday following. The hymn and song selections largely presume you will use the Candlemas readings, but if instead you are using those for the 4th Sunday after Epiphany there are music suggestions for those lections too.

Jane Williams offers reflections on Sunday readings only, so the Epiphany 4 readings apply in that case.


New! Jane Williams “Lectionary Reflections” Questions

A new page on this blog will (all things being equal) have a set of 3 questions for reflection based on the text of Jane Williams’ “Lectionary Reflections” (published by SPCK) for each Sunday of the 3-year cycle of readings. These will help when there’s no preacher available, or for small groups, or devotions based on the Sunday readings. The questions could also be published in Church bulletins for the Sunday ahead. See more on the RCL resources page (above).

Your feedback on the questions offered is welcome.
