Lutherans begin monthly climate fast

Catholic World News - January 03, 2014

The Lutheran World Federation – the Lutheran umbrella organization whose members include 142 Lutheran ecclesial bodies in 79 nations – has begun a monthly day of fasting for climate justice.

The day of fasting takes place on the first day of each month.

“We ask our LWF member churches to share this invitation and to embark on a Day of Fast for the Climate; to be active advocates in the context of climate change and climate justice,” said Carlos Bock, director of the federation’s Department for Mission and Development.

    I agree with the Journalist! There is an order of nuns in my area. Their pride and joy seems to be their environmentally friendly motherhouse. Periodically they host retreats focused on the environment, but I'm not sure that I have ever seen them host a retreat focused on growing in holiness. In justice I must say that I don't follow their doings meticulously, but I've yet to see such a retreat offered there!

    Did they have a day of fast for aborted children? For lost religious freedom?
