A Season Of Fasting

A sermon preached by Very Rev. Stephen W. Foote, Interim Rector of St. Bartholomew's in Yarmouth, Maine, on Sunday, March 4th, 2007

An excerpt:

If we must damage or even sacrifice a fragile and frail unity which was born in another age… if we must see our own American church divided and in turmoil…may it be for the right reasons. Not because we refused to abstain for a season, but because, in so refusing, in a critical moment, we chose to act in ways of Compassion and Justice and Unconditional Love, at any cost. That, I believe, is the fast that is pleasing to the Lord.
