Lectionary Poems, Year A


128 Pages


This is a book of insightful, often humorous, and always grace-filled poems for each Sunday of the church year and occasional other days. Based on one or more texts for Year A of the Revised Common Lectionary--Original Testament, Gospel, Letters, and Psalms--each poem reveals surprises about God much like the proclamations made by the biblical writers. For preachers, the poems here will be a joyful springboard to the sermon, each one a mini-sermon in itself; and for people in the pews, a brand-new way of thinking about the Bible. The index of 124 biblical references will make the book usable at any time. With titles like "The Once and Future Comeuppance of the Butters," "What's Really Original Here," "Three Drinking Limericks," and "They Thought It Was the Feds," these poems will help the reader discover the God known and shown by Jesus and the earliest faith communities as amazing, abundant, boundary-pushing, and bold.
