|Finding Christ in humanity.|
|The following excerpt from ROOTS AND WINGS: adventures of a spirit on earth, by Jack Haas, is a personal description of the author's understanding of Christ's humanity. It is not intended to limit Jesus Christ to this description alone, but instead to add this perspective to our way of seeing the infinite radiations of Christ's being.|
| "I see Christ as absolutely, painfully, and courageously human.
I see Christ as the essence of humanity in all of us.
I see Christ as a man without shame, without remorse, and without self-denial.
I see him dancing a mad dance, because the world is not enough for him, and because God is too much, and the cup will not be removed but that he has drunk it dry. And so he is unleashed in a wild and euphoric, desperate dance of acceptance and abandon, a tortured and uncultured, ignoble and redemptive dance of the flesh, because he is here and now, the maker and breaker of mankind, a son of mankind, a created God, gripped in the feverish passion of one who has nothing, is nothing, knows nothing but that to be alive is a mystery and a miracle worth enduring through no matter what, no matter where, be it in the harsh confines of all the cities on earth, in the lone sorrow of the endless wilds, in the arms and hearts of his brothers, sisters, and enemies, in the rain and sun and snow, in the hunger, the satiation, the awe and tribulations, in all that it is to be a man, to be on earth, to live, and love, and take up your song and sing for the glory of creation, even unto the cross."
