Preaching Peter’s Vision

Old habits die hard;

harder still when changing them

means facing failures borne of ignorance

or forged in unawareness.

Far easier to fear

that which we do not know,

or offer up, for the sake of form,

our feeble explanations

of the way it’s always been

and why it has to stay that way.

When Peter went out on a limb

acting his vision into reality,

the explanations soon found flesh

and took their stand against him,

until the Spirit

– that catalyst of common purpose –

eroded ignorance (in some)

and paved the way for something new.
