This Lent, I'm giving up food between dawn and dusk. I'm going to learn to live with one basic meal a day, which is still so much more than many others.
The reason I am fundraising for UnitingWorld's Lent Event is because I have seen first hand the amazing things that God is doing through our church partners to bring hope and life to people struggling with poverty and injustice. I want to stand in solidarity with them.
[Full disclosure: I have 6 travel days in Lent, and I will have to compromise on my fasting when I'm relying on the hospitality of others.]
