"Isaiah asks if God calls us to a fast where we simply humble ourselves? “Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to the Lord? Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke , to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter–when you see the naked clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?"

  • This type of Lenten “fasting” is in total agreement with what many of us in my local church family are doing–giving up material pleasures to facilitate giving to others in genuine need. Wonderful.
