FASTING AND FEASTING
March 6th, 2012 9:00 PM

Dear Friends,

As I was leaving church the other day, I noticed there were several handouts and newsletters placed on a desk in the vestibule. I came across a purple flyer which garnered my interest by the heading, 'Fasting and Feasting'. As you may be aware, many of us are involved in the season of Lent, where prayer, abstinence and almsgiving are activities where growth in one's faith has its rewards in spiritual discernment.

I believe many Americans have come to recognize there is a basis for the trials we as a nation continue to confront and endure.

I do not know the author of this work, however I am grateful that I have the ability to share it with you.
