Church of Christ Congregational (UCC), Norfolk, CT

“Jesus calls particular attention in the reading to how we treat “the least of these.” And his call to attention to these particular lives matters for us. Of course we are challenged to regard all as Christ and to behave accordingly, but Jesus names the hungry and the thirsty, those without clothing, the sick and the prisoners – those often forgotten or even disregarded or pushed to the edges or to the margins. He reminds us that they are worthy of our attention and our care and our love. In my view black girls in public schools are one such marginalized group, a group in danger.”
