fasting

Today, we're fasting for our partners in Nigeria. Over the past year or so there has been a significant increase in violence at the hands of Boko Haram, a radical, anti-government, anti-Christian group. Nativity, as a church community, fasted last summer for ten days, and we've since decided to keep up the practice, fasting on the first Thursday of each month. Aside from of course seeking God's peace for Nigeria and praying for our partners, it helps us connect with our brothers and sisters in Christ at Faith Alive and Anawim who are fasting at the same time as well.
