Sept 3rd 2017 – Sunday 22A

AN INCONVENIENT CALL
(Matthew 16:21-28)
If Jesus issued
an inconvenient call
it seems no-one moved.

But then with Jesus
they traipsed all the dusty way
to Jerusalem.

They denied, then hid,
yet our own stories tell us
somehow they followed.

How do I respond
to Jesus’ call that remains
inconvenient?
