John 18 (pt 6)

Desperate to remain close,
Yet understandably cautious in approach,
We see the man who will become foundation for a church,
Shuffle into the flickering shadows cast by the courtyard brazier.
So brash, so bold,
So often so delightfully wrong-focused,
The former fisherman is trapped in nets of uncertainty,
And warmed by the fires of casual denial.
“Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. Because this disciple was known to the high priest, he went with Jesus into the high priest’s courtyard, but Peter had to wait outside at the door. The other disciple, who was known to the high priest, came back, spoke to the servant girl on duty there and brought Peter in. “You aren’t one of this man’s disciples too, are you?” she asked Peter. He replied, “I am not.” It was cold, and the servants and officials stood around a fire they had made to keep warm. Peter also was standing with them, warming himself.” [John 18: 15-18]
