“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food or
thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you or
naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’
And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these
brothers and sisters of mine, you did it to me.’ ” Matthew 25: 37-40
One of the fundamental principles within our Judeo Christian faith is the mandate to take care of the poor, the widowed, the imprisoned, the stranger, the forgotten, the oppressed, the lonely…in other words, those in our human family who have been disinherited. We are called not only to feed and clothe and advocate for the disinherited but address the institutions, attitudes, and the conditions, that create such conditions. Join us this Sunday as we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Sunday and explore how we too can become hope for the disinherited.
