Christ of the Breadlines: Peacemaking Between Rich and Poor
In the parable of the sheep and goats, Jesus comes to us in the hungry, the thirsty, the naked, the homeless, the sick, and the incarcerated. But we regularly fail to notice the reversal: we don’t bring Jesus to the poor and disadvantaged, we welcome Jesus in the poor and disadvantaged. Embracing this perspective is foundational to peacemaking across socioeconomic boundaries, recognizing that our salvation is found with and among the poor.
