The California Council of Churches shared this poem from Rev. Jim Burklo that offers hope and courage for surviving our very hard time. In it, Rev. Burklo links our present experience of physical distancing and other changes with the practice of fasting in the Lenten season and reminds us of the good things—even in this difficult time—upon which we may feast.

Feast and Fast: Lent in a Time of Epidemic

                        Let us fast from hugging and handshaking
                        And let us feast on bowing and waving.
                        Let us fast from hoarding food and toilet paper
                        And let us feast on the food in the back of our pantries.
                        Let us fast from gathering physically
                        And let us feast on communing virtually.
                        Let us fast from obsessing about the future
                        And let us feast on the everyday wonders of the present.
                        Let us fast from casting blame for our troubles
                        And let us feast on showing compassion for the most vulnerable.
                        Let us fast from being scared
                        And let us feast on getting prepared.
                        Let us fast from fear
                        And let us feast on the perfect Love that casts it out.
Pastor Richard
