Session 5.34 for August 25, 2013
Do you fast? In today's text, the Israelites were proud of their fasting, but the prophet Isaiah tells them that fasting and failing to to serve others as God calls does not work. In strong language, Isaiah condemns the Israelites for the failure to care for the poor; and he challenges them to try a different kind of fast in which they seek after justice in their actions and in their communities.
