Home for the marginalized

Christian Science teaches that no matter what the human crisis, there is only one God and one omnipresent home, which embraces and includes all. 

Recently, I read an Associated Press article titled “From COVID to Ida: Louisiana’s marginalized ‘see no way out’ ” (Aaron Morrison, apnews.com, September 11, 2021). One dictionary defines marginalized as “relegate[d] to an unimportant or powerless position within a society or group” (merriam-webster.com). The article detailed the story of a Black family—a grandmother, along with her son and grandson—in what appeared to be a hopeless housing crisis. 

I found myself wondering, What does Christian Science say about this? These words from Psalms came to thought: “Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. . . . Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children” (90:1, 16).
