Day 21 - First Steps: Visit
"I take my cue from Jesus Christ..."
James Baldwin, 1986
"Well. … I take my cue from Jesus Christ, really, who told me and told all of us to love each other, clothe the naked, feed the hungry, and visit those in prison. If we can’t do that, you’re not a believer, I don’t care what church you go to."
James Baldwin, interview with Mavis Nicholson, 1986
... for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.
