CHRISTIAN AID - THE BIG IFAST ON THURSDAY 6TH JUNE

The Big IFast

How much do you want to end hunger?  Worldwide, one in eight people can't get enough food.  Ever wondered what that feels like?

As part of Christian Aid's IF campaigning in the run up to the G8, we're asking you to make hunger personal, just for one day, by choosing to go without food.  That way, the leaders of the world will see how hungry we are for change.


Is this not the fast I choose:
to loose the bond of injustice,
to undo the thongs of the yoke,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to break every yoke?.....
....If you offer food to the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the afflicted,
then your light shall rise in the darkness
and your gloom be like the noonday.
(Isaiah 58 v 6ff)
 
 

Prayers and worship resources are available from the Christian Aid website which you can use to support this campaign with your church.
