Love and peace or else

… the practice of love is nothing if not personal. You cannot simplify it into a function. What is dangerous is not ideas but the academic mind that abstracts  both things and people from particular relationships into concepts.

and what is dangerous is not programmes but the programmatic mind that routinely sets aside the personal in order to more efficiently achieve an impersonal cause.

these are not only dangerous but sacrilegious, for it is precisely relational particularities and personal intimacies that are at the centre of our GOD-given, SPIRIT formed identities as the beloved who are commanded to love.

Christ plays in 10000 places
