Peas and Carrots

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Moses and Aaron
Ponch and John
Fonzie and...his leather jacket?
Forrest Gump and Jenny.

Forrest Gump, 1994
I'm one of those "with" guys. 
I love to know people are with me.

Which is what makes my church's 21 Days of Praying and Fasting so cool.  We are doing this with each other.  For the next three weeks we are reading the same scriptures, wresting with the same questions, and praying for each other. 
I know there are people going completely without food for these weeks.  I know some people have said bye-bye to facebook and other media (TV, online news...).  I know some people are giving up a particular food.  And that's just the people who have shared their commitments with me.  I know there are others who are with us that I haven't heard about.

We are using a prayer and reading guide to move us through this season together.
You can download one here.

For me, there is beauty in doing this with each others.
It's good for me.
