“Peter answered him, ‘Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.’  Matthew 14:28

if it is you (we proclaim
loud enough so all can hear),
call us to end injustice,
to wipe out poverty,
to offer compassion to all,
to create peace rather than war,
when you say, “okay, have at it,”
our knees begin to knock
our feet begin to shuffle,
our hands begin to sweat, and we
sink beneath the waves
of our bravado
