Consecration / Lenten Theme

Seeking to Serve through Committed Consecration

Who:

The entire Shorter Community AME Church membership is encouraged to participate in the Daniel Fast.

When:

Wednesday, March 9th – Wednesday, March 30th

What:

The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, which means that we will eliminate some common things from our daily diet, but will have generous options available. We will focus on eating fruits and vegetables that are pure and simple. We have included a list of foods to eat and foods to avoid. *If you have any known medical conditions or suspect such conditions, consult your doctor before beginning the fast.

How:

There are multiple online resources available on the Daniel Fast. One thing you’ll notice is that there are many ways to do the fast. This is, in part, due to the lack of clarity in the bible as to exactly what Daniel did during his fast. However, to keep it simple, we have included in this packet what the congregation of Shorter Community AME Church will be doing during the fast and some of the resources we will be using. This fast will require preparation as most meals will be made from scratch. We will have some recipes available online.
