    Poems for Fifth Sunday, August 31

    It’s not too late to help us find poems for the fifth Sunday worship service on August 31. Every fifth Sunday, we do something different in worship. On August 31, we will proclaim the Word through poetry. We are seeking poetry for the different parts of the service, such as Call to Worship, Prayer of Confession, Sermon, and Prayers of the People. Revisit your favorite poems. If they would be appropriate for the worship service, email them to the pastor at trinitypastor@frontiernet.net or leave them in the church office. Include your ideas on where in the service to use the poems. If you write poetry, consider sharing them with us. Please submit your input today.

    Our primary scripture for the day will be Romans 12:9-21. Some of the themes in this passage are love, hope, prayer, hospitality, harmony, humility, peace, and overcoming evil with good.

    I heard author Kathleen Norris say that whenever she looked at her audience and saw people zoning out, she would read a poem. The different rhythm and flow immediately gets people’s attention. Come and see if you agree. Come and listen to the poets’ beautiful images as they surround you and capture your imagination. Come and listen for the Word of the Holy Spirit speaking through the words of poetry. Come and worship.

    Peace,

    Lee

    Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints; extend hospitality to strangers.

    Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly;do not claim to be wiser than you are. Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all. If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God;for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”No, “if your enemies are hungry, feed them; if they are thirsty, give them something to drink; for by doing this you will heap burning coals on their heads.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.          – Romans 12:9-21
