From now until June, you are invited and encouraged to Pray, Fast, and Act on the 21st day of each month, which is when Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits run out for 90% of the population. Fast in recognition of our own complicity, through action and inaction, in government policies that are not life-giving for all of God’s beloved people. You can fast from food, technology, social media, or television… or all of those things if you so desire!
You can pick up a burlap piece to wear as an indication you are fasting and praying on the 21st from the basket in the back of the church. If you have any specific injustice/issue, etc. which you would like to include in our Fast, Pray, and Act initiative, please let Deacon Barbara (firstname.lastname@example.org) know with any information you have.
Also, you are invited to either (1) briefly talk about it at announcements or (2) write a brief description of how the experience was for you or insights gained, etc.
