in the gospels, we already met a simon, simon peter.
he was foolish, but brave.
the one who made the confession that jesus was the messiah (matthew 16:16).
now that jesus bears the cross, he is found nowhere near: a run away.
a new simon was found, one who was trustworthy and strong, simon of cyrene.
where’s the in-between simon?
the simon, like me, who you can tell silly secrets to without shame.
where’s the in-between simon who needs some friends to help carry the cross with them.
where am i in the story?
