As I listen to this hymn to practice for my 1st effort of cantoring (is that a word...), I saw this post and had to laugh. It's a prayer for today. It's really not funny at all, but it just makes me want to eat the pre-lenten, 1/2 eaten box of girl scout cookies in my fridge.
God of our fasting, show us how our hunger unites us with those in need of bread, how letting go of life’s comforts can aid those lacking necessities for life. Amen.
