“In this unprecedented time when people around the globe are anxious and uncertain, strong preaching is more important than ever. I am truly grateful for a resource like The Living Word.”

–  The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church
and author of Love is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times

The Living Word Plus is a new paid-subscription email newsletter by the Living Church — with even more resources for preachers, teachers, and anyone seeking to read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest the Sunday lectionary readings. It is the premium version of The Living Word.

What’s different about The Living Word Plus?

Subscribe for $5 a month and you’ll receive an email every Monday morning with the same helpful reflections on the week’s readings as in the standard version of The Living Word, but with 3-4x more content, including:

  • Exploring the Texts, deep reflections from our Sunday’s Readings lectionary archives
  • Preaching Today, at least three contemporary sermons for inspiration by some of our best preachers
  • Classic Texts, 3-5 voices ancient and modern on topics relevant to the week’s readings
  • Articles illuminating and challenging articles on the week’s biblical themes

For preachers and teachers

The Living Word Plus is a curated by our editors, ecumenical, aligned with the rhythms of the Church year, and grounded in our liturgical and spiritual heritage. Every other week it also includes an invitation to a Zoom discussion with other preachers. This is an essential resource for preaching, teaching, worship planning, and individual study, designed to save time and build community. View an example issue.
