Lectionary Poetry – 11th Sunday After Pentecost (Year A)

With the dawn of a new church year, we have launched a new feature on our website, a weekly post of poetry that resonates with the lectionary readings for that week (Revised Common Lectionary).

Lectionary Reading: Matthew 15:10-28

CONTEMPORARY POEM:

The Word
Madeleine L’Engle

SNIPPET:

I, who live by words, am wordless when
I try my words in prayer. All language turns
to silence.
