Lectionary Poetry – 12th Sunday After Pentecost (Year A)

Lectionary Poetry Trinity Sunday

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:  Exodus 1:8-2:10

 
 

 CONTEMPORARY POEM:

Shiphrah and Puah, Midwives
Dana Littlepage Smith

SNIPPET:

How could Pharoah’s
Death-threats touch us
When we touched the dark
Strong thighs of the lion
Of Judah’s women?
