The Just, Quiet Wind
 

Authored by Timothy Matthew Slemmons

What has faith to do with esthetics? What role has poetry in devotion and worship? These poems, or devotional responses to the Scriptures (lectionary passages) that inspired them, represent one preacher's oblation, an artless offering of adoration, confession, wonderment, and praise. Neither esthetic creation nor ecclesial proclamation, at times homely, at others sublime, these poems sojourn in hope toward "a better country, that is, a heavenly one."
