I'm not doing a food discipline for Lent this year. Frankly, I can't figure out quite where to go from here, especially in the wake of having some restrictions in both quantity and variety imposed by my health since June of 2011.
But it's nice to see that others are thinking about eating less and eating more simply.
Here's a blog to follow:
It's been years since I've seen Fran, but I'm sure she will have some interesting reflections.
Meanwhile, after a couple of months of missing meetings, I'm back on track with our Sonoma County Food System Alliance - working on the policy committee, and volunteering for the communication committee. I feel that I increasingly carry the justice-seeking portfolio - but I'm trying with some success to temper my opinions with humor so I don't become insufferable.
I'm also pondering how to continue gently challenging and stretching my congregation on food issues.
Perhaps smiling and pondering are as significant as fasting?
