Lectionary Poetry – 5th 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: Zechariah 9:9-12

 
 
CONTEMPORARY POEM:

God’s Beast
Madeleine L’Engle

SNIPPET:
Least important of all animals, I am a beast
of burden. I can carry heavy loads,
and I am more patient than a camel.
