Forward Day by Day Submissions

Forward Day by Day offers daily inspirational meditations reflecting on a specific Bible passage, chosen from the daily lectionary readings as listed in the Revised Common Lectionary or the Daily Office from the Episcopal Church's Book of Common Prayer. The meditations are rich in substance and offer a wide range of witness and experiences. Each month’s meditation is written by a different author. Inspiring readers since our first issue was published in 1935, Forward Day by Day remains a significant resource for daily prayer and Bible study to readers worldwide.

New Resources - Submitting a Proposal

Forward Movement is committed to offering resources that strengthen and support discipleship and evangelism. We strive to provide insightful, engaging, and accessible content on a range of topics, including prayer, Bible study, spiritual practices, leadership, church traditions, and emerging trends. Our materials are published in a variety of formats, including print, electronic books, podcasts, online courses, PDF downloads, and smartphone applications. We publish resources in English and Spanish. Our primary audience is adult readers, often people in the pews but also clergy. While many of our resources are targeted for an Episcopal/Anglican audience, we also offer some materials for a broader reach.
