Let me remind you that I gave an assignment for class this week. It was to fast for 24 hours from being critical. I got this from reading Catherine Marshall. She got it from Matthew 7:1-2 which reads, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” From that she writes, “One morning last week. He gave me an assignment: for one day I was to go on a ‘fast’ from criticism. I was not to criticize anybody about anything.” (taken from Spiritual Classics)
Find a day to practice this and come to class and share your experience. You can speak up in class or write about your experience and have me read it. Whichever feels comfortable for you. I look forward to hearing what you found.
Have a great weekend.
