I’m supper excited to announce my newest book of poems: “The Lover and The Liturgist!”
The Lover and the Liturgist represents two different ways of approaching poetry — emphasizing the passion, or emphasizing the form. In this book, I give 25 poems in the style of the Lover, and then 25 poems in the style of the Liturgist. It is my hope that this book would help to demonstrate the necessity of balancing our passion and our reason, not simply in our poetry, but also in our worship of God. It is also my hope that these poems would serve to clearly illustrate the Gospel — our depravity, God’s justice, God’s redemption or mankind through His Son Jesus Christ, and our raptured response to this good news.
“For God so loved the world, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
I am excited to unveil my first book of poetry: “Important Trivialities.” While writing poems for SermonNotesPoem, I have been writing other poems on the side, which I’ve never had the chance to share with anyone. Well, this book is that chance.
Important Trivialities contains 50 poems, most of which have never been seen before! They range from topics of theology, nature, and even several short ballads. I’ve had a lot of fun writing these poems: laughed a lot, cried some, and several times I woke out of a deep sleep with the rhyme I couldn’t come up with while I was awake. I’m looking forward to releasing this book so that you can have a chance to read it as well.
