Confession of Peter Matthew 16:13-19

 There comes a time

when we must make a stand

when we must be who we are

and why

A time

when for one brief moment

all else ceases to be important

and that something more in life

that is at stake

takes center stage

At those times

Those moments

life swings through gentle arcs

to some other point

to some other time

and life goes on

except for that point

around which all of life swings

all of life lives

that time spoken to by Peter

For us all

Who do you say I am

Who in all that is

do you say I am

Who in all of time

do you say I am

Peter answered

The center point shifted

Life became somehow new

You are the Christ

The Son of the living God
