Somebody’s child

Stewart Lowe reflects on his volunteer work with the Care Van of the Bethany Christian Trust on the streets of Edinburgh.


I FIRST met this man so many years ago I can’t remember a time when he was not a part of my life. From the very first I was struck by his bizarre resemblance to the image of Jesus Christ we have been fed over two thousand years of iconography. My rough sleeper is tall with long, fair hair and a beard. He has eyes that have suffered and a quiet voice which has always made me think more deeply about things. One stubborn tooth clings to the front of his mouth. I have no memory of the names of the people I have met over the years.

Jason is the exception that proves the rule.
