New Multimedia Lectionary Resource

Recently I came across the website , a lectionary-based resource with multi-media examples connected to the scriptural texts of the week.  You have a choice of different views of the materials (by date, text, or imagery) and can click anywhere in the lectionary cycle.

This is a wonderful site. You can hear song selections, view artworks and other visual imagery, and read prayers and poems related to the passages. The weekly program is designed for personal reflection, or for sharing with others in a worship setting. A Tumblr version shows the most recent week's texts on the front page. There is also a Facebook version of the site.

What is refreshing about the site is a commitment to provide music, imagery and other creative liturgical resources without advertising and other efforts at monetizing.  Someone is doing this because they love to do it, and are contributing out of the goodness of their heart. It is a wonderful creative gift for those looking for imagery, music, and prayer/poetry resources relating to the weekly texts.
