Lectionary Poetry – Lent Week 2 (Year A)

Lectionary Poetry Lent Week 1

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).

just out of the blue
this unknown God
issues edicts.
