Well, with March now ending I’m pleased to announce that my 12 Poet’s Project has finished. What a year it has been – beginning with 17th century poet and pastor George Herbert and finishing in the 21st century with former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams.
To celebrate this year of exploring some of the best Christian poets of the past four hundred years, I have put together a collection of 12 highlights of the year: one poem for each month. You can access it here, via the 12 Poets Project page. You can also look back over all 48 poems, all linked from this page.
I’d love to know what the highlights have been for all of you. It’s certainly been wonderful delving into the riches of Christian poetry and seeing the ways that these 12 quite distinctive poets have given voice to their faith and viewed the world through the wonderful, nuanced prism it provides. I look forward to announcing my next writing project, due to be unveiled after Easter. In the meantime, God bless you all in this Lent season.
