Who are we?

Many people today think that a person is something deep and internal and individual. We are who we are deep down inside, in our hearts or minds or spirits. To understand ourselves we must journey within. But we aren’t and We shouldn’t. These things are important. Without them We can’t function as people. But they are just a sort of platform that we need in order to get on with the really important activities that define who We are as people—our relationships with other people.

We need to let this insight sink down into our bones. We are our relationships.—Paul: An Apostle’s Journey, 61
