The cast actors were photographed on the couch at my missionary doctor friends Jono and Destinies hospital in Southern Sudan.
At the back, from left to right, Aluel, Athem, Ajok, Zoe, Elli, Aluel, Shiloh & Ajak portray an image of how it is supposed to be. In the front, Zoe & Jed.
A child-like and playful innocence without prejudice, hatred, bitterness, and unforgiveness creates an environment to enjoy. This is a prophetic look into the future where black and white live as one.
The universal evil
Where does prejudice come from? How many of us are willing to acknowledge we are all prone to prejudice?
I have seen it in my heart and chosen not to pass it on to the next generation. It has stopped with me because I have and am learning love covers a multitude of sins*.
* I was happy to discover the word sin has an interesting history which is not a religious term. According to many sources it was originally, an archery sporting term for “Missing the mark”. After finding its origin I became curious about what it meant in the term “All mankind has sinned”. In context, what has mankind fallen short of?
It seemed reasonable to me, that if God had inspired men to write the scriptures then I should go to Him direct and ask what He said we had fallen short of. At this stage in my life journey, I discovered that prayer is not a religious and pious act, it actually is a conversation with the one responsible for all that we see, hear, taste, smell, and touch. blood veins peace prejudice
The road to peace – we all matter
- Black lives matter … yes! That does not mean that all lives don’t matter.
- White lives matter … yes! That does not mean that all lives don’t matter.
- All lives matter … yes!
- Every color has its own dysfunctional history of misguided agendas and all lives, no matter what coat of paint, need to forgive the past and not perpetuate bitterness from previous generations.
- This needs to happen from the heart if we are serious about stopping the rot. If not, the cycle of unforgiven atrocities passes on to the next generation.
- I have chosen not to pass blame and bitterness onto the following generations.
- Being a white male, I have been the victim of prejudice, hatred, and threats for being male, Australian, and white for crimes I never participated in.
- I understand the generational prejudice others experience which deems them to be continually ostracised. It’s painful to watch and in many cases, I have been empathetic with their unprocessed pain. It hurts.
- We all need to be responsible by standing up to prejudice, loving our neighbor, and taking an interest in the welfare of others.
- In my opinion, the oppressor has to make the hardest first step to fix the problem. Humility is not easy for a proud blame-shifter, fault-finder and that goes for any color or gender.
- It’s necessary for the oppressed to receive forgiveness and to give it in return and therein lies the answer … reconciliation on both sides stops the rot.
The manufacturers’ advice
“For the life of a creature is in the blood.
Made in the image (body, soul, and spirit) of a creator, mankind has the free will to forgive and love one another or to perpetuate prejudice, and unforgiving bitterness, over past injustices.
Mankind needs to know how forgiveness works.
Who has the keys?
Story to come
Multitudes know the secret. The mystery is available for all who truly seek it.
