A Poem for a Prostitute

09 Jul

One of the most beautiful stories in the gospels is found in Luke 7, when Jesus attends a dinner party at Simon the Pharisee’s house and a woman of the night shows up. I’m looking forward to preaching this passage in a few days, but in the meantime, my son has introduced me to a poetic style called the diamante. Here is my attempt for this wonderful story…


Reclined, Crasher

Weeping, Touching, Kissing

Offense, Prophet?, Woman, Sinner

Teaching, Comparing, Understanding

Forgiven, Loved


For tomorrow, Friday, July 10th: Luke 8
