Therefore in accordance with ancient traditions established by the early church fathers, Anglicans have in our liturgy both foot-washing and the Eucharist.

Day 26: Breakfast 

Fasted today. Evening service for prayer to start the ministry year. A Eucharist celebrated with the congregation surrounding the table. 

Literally broke my fast with bread and wine. 

God ministered to me in some tangible ways today. Oh He is so Good. 

Soli Deo Gloria
