3. Love me like a rock

“So you are Simon the son of John? You shall be called Cephas” (which means Peter). —John 1:42

Poor disciple. Always first to action —
making work, tending nonsense,
building booths and drawing swords,
proclaiming and denying, leaping
out of boats and to conclusions.
Getting nothing right until
the man you love is gone.
You, of all people, shall be called
Cephas, which means — be still.
