Keys to a Thriving Black Church

How can the black church thrive into the next century? The African American Lectionary, an organization that provides resources, perspective and support for historically black churches in the United States, invited African American clergy and scholars to reflect on the key needs of the black church at the start of 2013. Responses ranged from the need to increase the number of college-educated African American clergy and robustly engage in social media to a discussion about the resistance of female clergy in the black church.

To help faith communities recognize and celebrate being Christian and of African American heritage, the African American Lectionary also provides resources to enrich the sermons and worship planning of historic black church leaders who are following the Common Lectionary in 2013. The organization provides worship resources, Lectionary commentary, and cultural resources specific to the African American community. Additional resources are also archived and organized by topic and year.
