Christ, let me see You in others.
Christ, let others see You in me.
Christ, let me see:

You are the caller
You are the poor
You are the stranger at my door.

You are the wanderer
The unfed
You are the homeless
With no bed.

You are the man
Driven insane
You are the child
Crying in pain.

You are the other who comes to me
Open my eyes that I may see.

David Adam, from ‘The Cry of the Deer’, Retired English Minister
The Book of a Thousand Prayers


Luke 14:13-14

But when you give a feast,
invite the poor,
the crippled,
the lame,
the blind,
and you will be blessed,
because they cannot repay you.
For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the just.
