Time for Reconciliation: Lenten Devotions
Wednesday, March 30
In “Fasting: A Spiritually and Socially Transforming Practice,” Rev. Noelle Damico writes:
“There are a variety of ‘purposes’ for fasting, but a central purpose is that of reconciliation—to God and to one’s neighbor. From the practice of fasting we should be able to see God’s vision for our world more clearly and become determined to live with integrity. Fasting helps us identify the grave injustices around us, acknowledge and take responsibility for our participation and complicity in such injustice, and prepares us to act with God to transform ourselves and our world.”
We invite you to prayerfully consider fasting as one response to the social illnesses of our times. Where is God calling us—individually and collectively—to address human suffering?
