Enough employment and provision for everyone

I gazed at the wide horizon of the Atlantic Ocean, praying about the high unemployment rate caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many individuals were losing jobs, homes, and businesses and facing financial ruin. Predictions were suggesting that because of social injustice, Black, Latino, and Indigenous populations would likely have an especially tough road to recovery. As a Black woman, I’ve both overcome barriers and prayed for others who are facing barriers of their own. Reliance on God has always been my rock.

Watching the water, I saw that the wind was pushing heavy waves with numerous seagulls floating on top. The birds bobbed in the water with ease and continued looking for food even after the waves broke on shore. A couple of people came up carrying bags of grain. The seagulls flew up with eager squawks. Unafraid, some ate from the people’s hands.

We'd love to hear from you!
