Fasting is integral to the spiritual practice of people of all faiths. Like pebbles in our shoe, the hunger pangs of fasting prompt a continued awareness of the need to become more conscientious in our actions and to whole-heartedly commit to the inward transformation we seek. For Lent this year, we have prepared a “Carbon Fast” calendar to heighten your awareness of your carbon footprint and to suggest actions each day that will help you live more sustainably. We hope that this Lenten season will be a time for you not merely to “give something up,” but to make a more fundamental transformation as you prepare to awaken to new life in Christ.
Download the calendar and sign up to participate in the Carbon Fast with a virtual community of Michigan IPL supporters. Signing up links you to others who are fasting and will provide you with encouragement, invitations for reflection, and reminders to help you stay on track.
