Clothed by Maggie Nez
How we are clothed seems to be a theme in the scriptures. We are clothed in God’s goodness. We are clothed in light. We are clothed in protection against evil. We are clothed in God’s love.
When I see the homeless who have only the one thing to wear, I wonder how they understand these metaphors.
Many are clothed in fear, in anxiety, and in loneliness.
Yet some are clothed in kindness and thanksgiving and compassion. Somehow they know that they are more than just street people. I find great peace in talking with them.
