Poetry enriches our lives, whether we know it or not! In recent years, I have discovered the world of poetry, especially devotional poetry, in a much more intentional way.
The Apostle Paul in his letter to the Christian community in Ephesus actually uses poem-like concept as a way of describing how we are made to participate in the good, the true and the beautiful work God is producing. “For we are God’s workmanship…” (Eph. 2:10); God’s masterpiece, (poiema in Greek); what he has made; God’s poem!
It’s a continual feast to explore many of the great poets who feed my soul and mind. This will be place to curate blogposts and articles on poets and poetry, as well as some of my own work.
More to come, including thoughts on building a community of poets in our region and on-line.
