Sabbath Reflection: Comfort, Shelter and Nourishment

All sorrow shall pass, the persecuted shall in time rise, the ones who oppress the least shall be last and the ones at the last shall be praised. The paradigm will shift until then we do our part, our reward is not exaltation but doing the right thing.

God this I pray, for those who suffer give them comfort, for those who shiver in the cold give them shelter, for those who hunger give them nourishment. Give them wisdom that even if this world will not provide them with those three, they can find comfort, shelter and nourishment in the abiding love that is thee #amen

“Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.” ~ Zephaniah 3:19

Teodrose Fikre is the editor and founder of the Ghion Journal. A published author and prolific writer, a once defense consultant was profoundly changed by a two year journey of hardship and struggle. Going from a life of of upper-middle class privilege to a time spent with the huddled masses taught Teodrose a valuable lesson in the essence of togetherness and the need to speak against injustice.

Originally from Ethiopia with roots to Atse Tewodros II, Teodrose is a former community organizer whose writing was incorporated into Barack Obama's South Carolina primary victory speech in 2008. He pivoted away from politics and decided to stand for collective justice after experiencing the reality of the forgotten masses. His writing defies conventional wisdom and challenges readers to look outside the constraints of labels and ideologies that serve to splinter the people. Teodrose uses his pen to give a voice to the voiceless and to speak truth to power.
