Lectionary Poetry – Epiphany Week 5 (Year A)

Lectionary Poetry Advent

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: Isaiah 58:1-12

 
 

Fasting
Rumi

 

SNIPPET:

When you fast, good habits gather
like friends who want to help.

Fasting is Solomon’s ring.
Don’t give it to some illusion
and lose your power.
