Elizabeth, I have to ask, since your fast customs are much stricter than our Roman Catholic ones (no meat/meat products on Fridays in Lent, and only 2 days of fasting)--is it difficult to get all the membership to follow the fast? I am not trying to belittle what you do; on the contrary, I think it is a wonderful discipline. But I know that more Catholics spend the fast/abstinence from meat days grumbling about what they CAN'T have and I'm sure many "break the rules." How does your church motivate its members to participate in the fasts, and in the correct spirit?
