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).
*** Revised Common Lectionary ***
1 Timothy 6:6-19
Liberty Hyde Bailey
To the fields to rest.
On the rim of the West.
As it dropped to its nest.
And my soul
The boon of its quest.
*** This poem is in the public domain,
and may be read in a live-streamed worship service.
