Friday Fast

Eat no food or drink until sun down.

Wendell Berry once wrote that:

“There are no unsacred places;

there are only sacred places

and desecrated places.”

The same could be said of food.  In fasting we stop eating to open space in our lives to once again find the sacredness of food and embrace the goodness of God.  It is a way of rest for the body, a kind of Sabbath.  Today think about the sacredness of the food you will eat to break the fast and plan your meal so that it is truly sacred food rather than the descrated food that comes in a society focused on speed.
