About Reflectionary

What They Say …

  • “The Reflectionary is a very creative blog with art, object lessons, craft projects, and insightful commentary on the Revised Common Lectionary passages. Definitely worth a look and a follow.” More than Hearing
  • “This is really good ~ thank you! If this Mark example is anything to go by, this is exactly the sort of stuff I’m looking for! As my first real foray into such activities, although it was a little anarchic, the children responded very well to the activity and the prayers afterwards. I am indebted to you.” – Chris Maclean, curate

How to find what you want

The Reflectionary has articles and resources related to the Bible readings in the Revised Common Lectionary. They are posted on Mondays, two weeks ahead of when they are needed, giving you time to prepare for groups or services.

In addition to the main Monday posts, extra items are added most Fridays – children’s puzzle pages, mindfulness colouring, scripts, activities etc.

If you want to search for resources on a particular topic, season or scripture, you can use the search box or the categories on the right. Entries are listed by book and chapter and by the liturgical year (eg Pentecost 14C) in as many ways as possible.

The search box is ‘generous’ with its results, so if you want to search for a particular chapter or week, use quotes, eg “Mark 10”. Otherwise you’ll get every entry featuring either Mark or 10, not just Mark 10.

Each post comprises:

  • One of the set readings for that week from the RCL (mainly gospels at present) with the full text in a modern translation
  • A free-to-use graphic based on the text
  • A reflection on the Scripture with response and prayer
  • A craft or activity that develops the theme
  • Puzzle Pages – children’s printable PDF (certain posts)
  • Mindfulness Colouring (certain posts)
