Lectionary Poetry – 17th 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).
 
 

*** Revised Common Lectionary ***

Lectionary Reading: Psalm 78:1-4, 12-16

 
 
CONTEMPORARY POEM:

Ancestors Never Sleep
Alice Walker

SNIPPET:

Ancestors never sleep
And always seem to know
What they’re doing.
How is this possible?
I ask myself.
