Hymn: Foretaste of Friday

Proper 17 Year A

Matthew 16: 21 – 28

Foretaste of Friday,
shadow of judgement,
Peter resisting
God's fateful end.
Jesus deciding
where he is riding,
cross casting shadows,
life's journey's end.

This was God's purpose,
never resisting,
meeting our hatred
with human love.
Hanging then dying,
never denying,
valued all people,
worthy of love...


Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost, Matthew 16: 21 – 28, Peter,
Satan, judgment, resistance, cross, following, discipleship, courage,
expedient, suffer, dying
