Your thought echoes what I recently read in the Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne. He talks about putting a face on "issues"...that when we do that, we can't ignore them any more. When we see people as God's creation, and His creation as He loves, then we can learn to appreciate them no matter what their circumstance. Looking into someone's eyes creates an intimacy, a connection. It's scary, but I don't really want to live disconnected from God's creation. Thanks for your words. I'll definitely be pondering them over the next few weeks.

Andrea -- there is power in looking and truly seeing another person. Thank you for your comment.

LL - Yes. To be seen is a deep longing we are often unaware of until we are invisible, as that man in NYC was.

I do like that advice. *Look* at the need. We so often turn because it feels impossible to help. But we can. Good post.

This brings to mind a poem I once read by a homeless man in NYC. More than anything else, what he wanted was someone to look into his eyes. I've never forgotten that. It reminds me too of how Hagar named God, "the God who sees me." If we are little Christ's then might we not also be little-ones-who-see?

Thank you. My son has Down Syndrome and the most important thing our church family has given us is their love and acceptance. They know that Elijah has special needs and cheer for his successes, but mostly they simply treat him as a typical child, loving him unconditionally and incorporating all of us into the life of the church.

Your post is also a reminder for me to treat other people with dignity and love. I need to remember to look at people, even when I am feeling shy or uncertain. At the very least, a friendly smile is better than averting my gaze and shuffling away.
