We have many modern conveniences which are not available to many in our world. As an act of solidarity with those living in poverty, try fasting from appliances. This is also often an environmentally friendly Lenten practice.
You might not be able to fast from every single appliance in your home. For example it would be really difficult to give up your washing machine or your refrigerator. But there are many you can give up:
- Dishwasher – wash by hand instead
- Dryer – line dry those clothes
- Hair dryer – let you hair air dry
- Coffee maker – gasp!
- Waffle maker
- Food processer
- Curling iron
- Microwave oven
And the list goes on and on…
