150 poems. 150 reflections on life. 150 devotionals. All written by women of faith. That is what you find in this volume. I picked it up because I have read, enjoyed, and valued Martha Spong's writing in one place or another since I first began this blog some 15 years ago. There are other writers in here whose writing I have also read in the blogosphere (do we still call it that?) over the years.
These reflections that jump off from the Psalms are deeply emotive, as the Psalms themselves are. They touch on issues personal and political, as the Scriptural Psalms do. Many a time I found myself wondering when I might use that poem in worship.
