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.
*** Narrative Lectionary ***
John 4:46-54 [5:1-18]
Some keep the Sabbath going to Church
*** This poem is in the public domain,
and may be read in a live-streamed worship service.
Sabbath Poem 1985,V
How long does it take to make the woods?
As long as it takes to make the world.
The woods is present as the world is, the presence
of all its past, and of all its time to come.
It is always finished, it is always being made, the act
of its making forever greater than the act of its destruction.
