Sojourner Truth: “Do For Me God”

Sojourner Truth: “Do For Me God
Oh, God, you know I have no money, but you can make the people do for me, and you must make the people do for me.
I will never give you peace till you do, God.

The indefatigable Sojourner Truth, the former slave who became outspoken in her defense of human dignity, often spoke to God in a no-nonsense way. She believed that if she was to do God’s work on earth, Divine Providence should be with her each step of the way.
