Lectionary Poetry – 10th Sunday After Pentecost ( Year B )

Lectionary Poetry

We continue our  weekly series of poetry that resonates with the lectionary readings for the week (Revised Common Lectionary and Narrative Lectionary). Please note that the Narrative Lectionary takes a hiatus over the summer, and will return after Labor Day.

We offer here a broad selection of classic and contemporary poems from diverse poets that stir our imaginations with thoughts of how the biblical text speaks to us in the twenty-first century. We hope that these poems will be fruitful not only for preachers who will be preaching these texts on the coming Sunday, but also for church members in the pews, as way to prime our minds for encountering the biblical texts.

“Freedom, justice, peace, and abiding joy (emerge)
when the poet comes, when the poet speaks,
when the preacher comes as poet.”

 – Walter Brueggemann
