Lectionary Haiku 17 March 2022

Each of today’s readings arises from contexts of acute awareness of danger. The Psalm is from David as a fugitive from Saul. The fiery furnace of Daniel and the missive in Revelation both speak of times of holding fast against persecution, both external and from our own thoughts within.

Psalm 63:1-8

Outside all is bleak
Within, you spread a vast feast
Hunger is sated

Daniel 3:19-30

Nebuchadnezzar
Fire burns, but does not consume
Who’s the winner now?

Revelation 2:8-11

Paradox of faith
Testing brings pain, maybe death
But true life abounds.
