LDS members fast, pray for rain

From page A4 | January 30, 2014 |

This Sunday, the community is invited to join members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in a special day of fasting and prayer for rainfall.

“It’s not uncommon for people of all faiths to turn to God in a spirit of prayer and fasting, particularly in circumstances outside our control,” said Corey Cuvelier, president of the Woodland California Stake, which includes eight congregations of the LDS church in Davis, Woodland, Winters and Dixon. “In what could be the worst drought on record in California, we seek divine help and invite our neighbors to join us.”
LDS church members are encouraged to fast the first Sunday of each month and go without food or drink for two consecutive meals. The money they would have spent on these meals is donated to the church’s welfare system to assist the poor and needy.
More than 775,000 LDS members live in California, and congregations throughout the state have been encouraged to pray and fast for rainfall this Sunday. The community is invited to attend the local meeting designated for this fast at the Davis chapel, 785 Elmwood Drive, at 11 a.m.

    The Mormons fast every first Sunday of the month. February 2nd is no different. Rain has been in the forecast for the past ten days. No doubt Mormons everywhere will use this natural act of nature to confirm their odd belief that a god somewhere in the universe decided today would be a good day for California to have some rain. Narrow minds . . . Thank you for your fast donations to those in need and less fortunate.

    Speaking of "narrow minds"? Putting down other's religion might be considered narrow too, huh Ken Dahl?
