Lectionary Poetry – 23rd 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).
 
 

*** Revised Common Lectionary ***

Lectionary Reading: Joshua 24:1-3a, 14-25

 
 

CONTEMPORARY POEM:

The Watchman of Ephraim
Paul Hoover

SNIPPET:

Hear the word of the Lord,
ye children of Pittsburgh,
of Calistoga and Tlaquepaque,
ye hierophants and wishbones,
teraphim and household plants,
for I am a jealous God betrayed.
