Another Scroll | Defiant Readings for Lectionary Year C (Brooks)
A Sacred Invitation
You have been told to study the ancient texts. Has no one ever given you permission to read -- and to keep on reading -- until you find yourself between the pages?
To the Revised Common Lectionary schedule of readings for Year C, Amy G. S. A. Brooks adds another scroll of holy texts: gritty, fiercely loving, justice-minded poems that defy theological oppression. Another Scroll offers a poetic reflection on scripture for each Sunday and feast day, helping the texts to unfurl in courageous affirmation of the reader.
As Brooks notes and Another Scroll upholds: "Beloved, in case no one has told you: you are whole, you are holy, you are wholly loved."
