Lectionary Poetry – Advent Week 1 (Year A)

With the dawn of Advent and a new church year this coming weekend, we are launching 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:   Matthew 24:36-44

been looking for them, for the you
I once knew and the you that was born

waiting for me to find you.
