I know, it’s not the best topic after a post about free doughnuts. But, all the same, another Fast Sunday is here.
My question for you is, when and how much do you ask your children to fast?
Here at our house, we start fasting after baptism, but only one meal. This is mostly because we are 15 minutes away from our building, and this year our church goes from 1:30 to 4:30. This means that if we didn’t eat a small lunch beforehand, 5:00 would be the ABSOLUTE earliest we could shove food into their little bodies, and while that is definitely close to the full 24 hours that we are asked for, I also feel it’s a little too long for a 8 or 9 year old body to go without food. My husband doesn’t eat until afterwards.
(When church ends at at 12:00 or 2:00, we won’t be eating beforehand.) (Well, I will, but that’s because I’m diseased.)
What’s the policy at your house?
