A Story to Break Your Heart
"Our country has, through its whole history, chosen some people to value less than a sparrow. And so, our gospel for today has not been true for them. While they are valued by God more than the sparrows, our country has not valued them more than the sparrows. And so huge numbers of people in our country and around the world have taken their anger and their frustration and their mourning to the streets, because their hearts have broken. For many of them, their hearts have broken again. And so, their mourning and their anger has poured out into the streets. They are telling us what it’s like to be valued less than the animals.
We have a lot of work to do. We have a lot of work to do as Christians, as Americans, to make sure that this gospel for today is true for all people. That everyone, when asked, “Aren’t you worth more than many sparrows?”, can know that the answer is unequivocally, “yes”."
