Sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the whole earth.
Sing to the Lord and bless God’s Name;
proclaim the good news of God’s salvation from day to day.

Psalm 96:1-2

Episcopalians in throughout Oregon are putting together a poetry compilation for Advent and Christmas – and we’d like you to join us. Our theme is “The Seasons of Advent and Christmas”, but poems on our Episcopal life in Oregon will also be considered. Poems will be bound and sold online, the proceeds going to Calder Arts, an Oregon-based arts program geared towards young people.. The deadline for poems is November 1st. Whether you are a professional poet or just like to dabble, join us as we sing poetry unto the Lord!

Send poems to either or All Episcopalians worshiping in Oregon are welcome to send in their work. Please include, along with your poem, your name and the church you attend.

How do I purchase a copy?

We’ll post more information about purchasing the poetry collection as the deadline draws near.

When will the compilation be published?

We are aiming to have the compilation ready for Advent. More information will be posted here in the following weeks.
