Choose the Cross, Not the Arches

Starting today–Ash Wednesday–we’re “Not Lovin’ It”.  We’re embarking on our Fast Food Fast for Worker Justice as a way to show solidarity with all low-wage workers throughout the global economy.  We’re giving up Big Macs and Big Gulps and Blizzards and Lattes.   But we’re not just giving up Fast Food; we’re giving up an economic system that chews up people and spits them out all in the quest for greater and greater profit–the idol of the marketplace.

Every day during Lent, a devotional will be posted to help you engage the issue of worker justice.  You can share comments, interact with others who are on the Fast Food Fast.  Together, we will learn what God has to say about work and wages and a different economy.  And we will move toward God’s vision of ‘shalom’ and justice.  Link HERE for today’s devotional.
