Sojourners Verse and Voice – 25 March 2023

March 25, 2023

Verse of the day
Is not this the fast that I choose: to loose the bonds of injustice, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke?

– Isaiah 58:6

Voice of the day
Isaiah reminds us that fasting is not about piety, but liberation. … At a time when social and political crises of all sorts loom, Lenten fasts are vital tools for individual and communal spiritual health.

– Jeania Ree V. Moore, “Why Fasting is Actually About Liberation

Prayer of the day
This Lent, Lord, may we move away from viewing this season as a time for our personal piety but instead as a way to love and care for those in our midst.
