The authors and contributors to this web site intend it to be a tool for pastors and teachers serving the church of Jesus Christ. Toward achieving that end, the best use of the material presented here is as a "starting point" for your own exegesis and application of the lectionary texts. From that beginning we cordially invite you to contribute to the material that will be presented here by sending your comments and questions as you work through the texts yourself.
You may contribute to the dialog in these pages in two convenient ways: 1) Email your responses or inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org using the email facility of your browser or your favorite email program. 2) Use any one of the response "forms" provided on certain pages, (or the links to the main response form) provided at strategic points on the lectionary pages. Either method is fine for now, though things may change as these pages develop and the use of them increases.
