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).
*** Narrative Lectionary ***
Upon Lazarus His Teares.
O happy Lazarus! richer in thy tears
Than he who midst his riches purple wears.
Hell’s purple flames red-glowing shall be his:
Ah, then how shall he count thy tears a bliss!
*** This poem is in the public domain,
and may be read in a live-streamed worship service.
Still Falls the Rain
Still falls the Rain
At the feet of the Starved Man hung upon the Cross,
Christ that each day, each night, nails there, have mercy on us –
On Dives and on Lazarus:
Under the Rain the sore and the gold are as one.
Reading for the Common Good
From ERB Editor Christopher Smith
"This book will inspire, motivate and challenge anyone who cares a whit about the written word, the world of ideas, the shape of our communities and the life of the church."
