Fasting for Familiesby Angie

At my Spirit Dance class this morning, two of the women were talking about fasting – specifically, that they are both participating in a 40-day “Fast for Families.”  They are both Born-Again Christians, and their ministers have organized this fast to support Proposition 8 (the CA Marriage Amendmant).  So, they began earlier this week with whatever type of fasting they felt they could contribute:  Trudy is fasting from food and will only drink liquids from now until November 4th.  Jessica said that she and several other people she knows are fasting from an action, like watching TV or drinking alcohol or a bad habit, until Election Day.  I love it!  When I was home with Jim we discussed the idea and we plan to join in.

    That’s a neat idea. I love seeing that there are so many people not of our faith who believe in protecting that which is sacred.
