Politics in the Pulpit


The Joint Public Issues Team (JPIT) is a partnership between the Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Methodist Church, and the United Reformed Church.

Politics in the Pulpit is the Joint Public Issues Team’s lectionary-based weekly preaching resource.


We ask how the justice issues present in the Bible spur us to be good news in the world today. Each week, we welcome a different guest, discussing the political dimensions present in the Bible readings explored by many churches the following Sunday, and reflecting on how they connect with the week’s current news and our calling to be justice seekers.


Episodes are released on Tuesday mornings. Discussions focus on some of the passages listed in the Revised Common Lectionary, but our exploration of current issues will be also be of interest for preachers who aren’t following the lectionary.
