What is Christian fasting? It’s in the New Testament, and Catholics eat fish on Fridays in Lent. And these days, dieters even talk about intermittent fasting. At the Worship Standing Leadership Group meeting last Sunday, we were thinking about ideas for Lenten practices. And when we considered the topic of fasting, Yiwola told us about the practice of Lenten fasting that he and Iyabo have brought from the Anglican Church in Nigeria and still follow each year. It’s startling that none of us knew of their tradition; and it’s sort of impressive and a challenge as we think about our own Lenten preparations.
Join us, and Yiwola and Iyabo will tell their stories and the difference that this spiritual discipline has made for them. But we will share our brown bag lunches before we talk about fasting!!! All are welcome.
