Lectionary Poetry – Epiphany Week 1 (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: Matthew 3:13-17

 
 

Jesus’s Baptism
Malcolm Guite

Found in:
Sounding the Seasons

SNIPPET:

The voice that made the universe reveals
The God in Man who makes it new again.
He calls us too, to step into that river
To die and rise and live and love forever.

[ READ THE FULL POEM ] (and listen to a song based on it)
