May 28, 2017: Too Fast

The holy days of Ramadan began on Friday.  One of the demands of this time is called sawm — abstaining from food and drink during the hours between sunrise and sunset.  The discipline of fasting is found in all of the great religions of the world, and while for a variety of reasons it is not safe for everyone, this ancient practice of fasting can offer a way of slowing down in our hectic modern world.

Note:  this is the first Sunday on our summer schedule — one service only, at 10:00.
