Fast for Change
World Food Day is tomorrow and Canadian Food Grains Bank is heading up an initiative to try and get Canadians involved in Fasting for change and raising the profile of 900 million people worldwide who are chronically malnourished.
go check out Fast for Change to get more info. there will be a worship service tomorrow here in Winnipeg that i will be at. if you want to attend then you'll just need to show up at St. Mathew's Maryland Church at the corner of St. Mathew's and Maryland Streets at 6 pm tomorrow evening. there are also several other events planned at the church throughout the day.
whether or not you actually fast is up to you and what you think you're able to do according to your health needs. let's try and bring about some change though.
in closing i want to add this link where i found this quote:
When I feed the poor they call me a saint. When I ask why so many people are poor they call me a communist.
- Dom Helder Câmara, late archbishop of the Brazilian diocese of Olinda and Recife. Oct. 13 was the anniversary of his death.
