When we think that we are persons, we are immediately enmeshed in a ranking system. According to this system, the death of a queen is vastly more important than the death of an unbaptized orphan in a country with no weapon systems and a minor league GDP. The word ‘person’ comes from the Latin for actor’s mask. Clearly, there’s no benefit to be derived from reforming our systems. We just need clarity about who we are not.

Stand up and walk

Love makes no distinctions. (Unless the sun shines with greater favour on one country than another. Unless God blesses America.)

Love does not see persons as problems. (Jesus: “Why is he lying down?” He was perplexed. He didn’t get it.)

We are cured of sickness when we are seen to be well.

In the seeing is the doing.
