Lenten Affirmation

“Is not this the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of injustice….
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
and bring the homeless poor into your house?” Isaiah 58:6-7

We have chosen to fast
Not with ashes but with actions
Not with sackcloth but in sharing
Not in thoughts but in deeds

We will give up our abundance
To share our food with the hungry
We will give up our comfort
To provide homes for the destitute
We will give up our fashions
To see the naked clothed

We will share where others hoard
We will free where others oppress
We will heal where others harm

Then God’s light will break out on us
God’s healing will quickly appear
God will guide us always
God’s righteousness will go before us

We will find our joy in the Lord
We will be like a well watered garden
We will be called repairers of broken walls
Together we will feast at God’s banquet table
