Throughout the year, Stuart Ford helps us to reflect on the Sunday readings through the images of Seeds, Saplings and Fruit.

You’ll notice that they’re structured into three parts:

  1. Seeds: these are little ideas about each of the Scriptural readings.
    They’re designed to spark a thought that you can explore on your own or in a group.
    They include questions to consider, different passages to compare and contrast, or give you an insight into the historical context.
  2. Saplings: these provide reflections on the readings.
    They’ll take different shapes; sometimes, they’ll be a reflection on each reading, showing how they link together and tell a unified story; at other times, they’ll focus on one reading and look at it in more depth.
  3. Fruit: these are signposts for further reading that explore the doctrinal significance of the Scriptures or their practical and moral implications for our daily living.

You might find these useful if you are:

a) listening in the pews – particularly the Sapling section might help you reflect more deeply on the readings.

b) a priest or a deacon preparing a homily – particularly the Seed and Fruit sections might help you to prepare your sermon.

Enjoy your encounter with the Lord in his word!
