The Hunger Words

How do we talk about hunger? What assumptions underlay the language we use in America when talking about hunger and poverty? “Public assistance,” “entitlement,” “welfare,” “food insecurity,” and “charity.” Our word choice relates to a way of seeing the poor. It relates to a story, or a narrative—a way of telling about the facts. What ARE the facts about poverty and hunger? And what stories are being told to justify particular policies and actions, or lack of action? And what can you do about it? This is the first of what we are calling “Sermon to Service Sundays,” a new initiative described in the October newsletter.
