Keith Petersen was an active member of CUCC who died in 2001. His poetry, written mostly in the 1990s following his retirement from the History Department at NCSU, became his passion during his retirement years. The poems in this rare little booklet entitled Lectionary Poems (only two copies exist) were written by Keith in response to a Bible Study class held at Community UCC during the winter and spring of 1989-1990. In 2000, Lavon Page recorded Keith at his kitchen table reading a specially selected group of poems that Keith thought were his best. These recordings are still available. In the fall of 2000, Keith prepared a small booklet that included the poems he had selected for the recording session. This booklet was called Selected Poems by Keith.
