Keeping The Faith in Babylon:

A high quality lectionary based pastoral resource for "Christians in and out of the institutional church" by Barry Robinson of "Fernstone" in Lion's Head, Ontario, Canada.

This resource features a full sermon text, biblical resource materials, study questions and suggestions for further reflection and devotion. Samples and pricing information are available on the Web Page or directly from Barry at fernstone@fernstone.org. Recommended.

These can be downloaded in pdf format.  The PLAY file can be downloaded to enable you to play the melody line on your computer.  New works are added tothe site as they become available.
