For study in person, with good old fashioned books…
Church of the Covenant has a great library for browsing and study. Come in just about any time the office is open [M-F, 9-3:30] for a quiet place to read. Call first to see if there are any meetings scheduled for the Library Lounge.
For Online browsing…
With the wide variety of Internet resources available, it’s sometimes difficult to tell the good from the bad apples. Here are some tools that Pastor Beth recommends:
Oremus Bible Browser http://bible.oremus.org/
A good, basic way to look up scripture passages in many different translations.
The Text This Week
A good way to follow the Revised Common
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revised_Common_Lectionary passages for Christian worship in many churches. Church of the Covenant sometimes follows the Lectionary for preaching and teaching.
The Intersection of Faith and Life http://bible.crosswalk.com/
Christian Classics Ethereal Library
http://www.ccel.org/ This amazing site, supported by Calvin College, has published and expanded the availability of Christian writings from all times, particularly the centuries that are now not protected by copyrights. Nothing is hidden. There are no “secret” writings that are unavailable.
A podcast site about worship renewal…good stuff
Really Good Bloggers…of the Presbyterian persuasion.
