The fasting God prefers...

"Isaiah says explicitly that God prefers another kind of fasting which changes our actual lifestyle and not just punishes our body (The poor body is always the available scapegoat to avoid touching our purse, our calendar, or our prejudices)."
Fr. Richard Rohr, "Wondrous Encounters: Scripture for Lent"
With this awesome reminder, let's spend time praying and thinking about how we can delve into our purses, rearrange our calendars and prejudices and actually DO something worthwhile this Lent.  Maybe doing something for the Body of Christ and not just punishing our own bodies? That is the fasting God prefers! Love, heidi
