Lectionary Poetry – 4th 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: Psalm 89:1-4, 15-18

 
 
CONTEMPORARY POEM:

Days of Hesed
Yehuda Amichai

SNIPPET:

on a winter street during days of loneliness and pain.
Even for days of hesed we need at least two,
one to give hesed and one to receive it.
