L Do you straggle with your weight? Many of us do. Even though many people call me skinny, I know better. After Harrison died I was fat. All that time in the car added up to too much junk food. I weighed 232 pounds. When I looked up my height and weight on a chart, I was two pounds less than "obese." That did it! I had to get serious about my weight. Today, my goal is to shine a Light on our battle of the bulge, and I pray, a little hope too. First, bring your weight to the Lord and trust in His memy. No one is bad or unlovable because of tbeir weight. God even likes skinny people! When I needed to lose weight, the Lord directed me to the fasting rules of the Orthodox Church. Now before you say, "I'm not going to starve myself," I want to tell you that I didn't either. A "fast day" in the Orthodox tradition is to stay away from animal products, alcohol, and olive oil. For example, you would not eat hot dogs, steak, eggs, milk, or put olive oil on your salad. Generally speaking, Orthodox people fast every Wednesday (in honor of our Lord's betrayal) and Friday (to re- member His sacrifice on the Cross). There are extended fasting periods such as Advent and Lent too. The faithful are encouraged to enter into the spirit of the fast by eat- ing moderately, but there are no hard and fast rules for how much you should eat. So, I would pray or "offer" my fast for a specific intention that day. This focuses the mind. It also gives us something to encour- age us when we have that urge for a Whopper! Many times I ask myself, "What do I want more, that piece of cheese (or meat etc.) or a stronger, more healthy marriage? Most often, the prayer intentions of my fast are things like my mar- riage and my children. I found that more than just losing weight, I was growing spiritually. And I should interject here, that the primary reason to fast must be for our spiritual lives and not our weight. The reason we lose weight by following the fasting rules is that our lives come into bal- ance. We are made in God's image and likeness. We are body and soul. Body and soul go together. The ancient Christian, St. Maximos the Con- fessor taught that the body and soul interact with each other to ascend to God. If we are unhealthy in body or spirit, it will affect our relationship with God. So, even our eating habits affect our spiritual lives. Applying the fasting rule to my life, I lost about 35 pounds. Last spring, with all the excitement of moving, going back to college, and liv- ing out of boxes, I forgot about fasting for a time and got out of balance again. By mid-June my weight was over 220! I had to return to fasting and balance. Now, I am back to 198, but I am not going to stop this time. I must remember balance. I must remember moderation. I must keep sound eating practices a part of my spirituality. I really like the Orthodox Church. They teach cool things like: "Sin isn't something to be punished, but something to be healed." I think this applies to our weight as well. We aren't bad because we are overweight. We aren't overweight because we are bad. We are overweight because something is out of balance and needs healing. The "bad" things in our lives are an occasion for us to seek the Healer. While fasting may not work for everyone, I'd like to recommend that you try it. Next week, I'll give you some links and advice before you begin. Until then, perhaps Cu can think and pray. Is your life out of balance? Do you need he 'g? Go, ask the Lord. " I Peace be with you. {, !L/ Librarian's Corner By Vicki Grimli The Ortonville Public Library is open Monday-Thursday I1 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday 12-5 p.m. and Saturday 10-3 pan, The book club will be meeting at 7 p.m. at the library to discuss the book "May Day" by Jess Lourey. Come and see what the others who read it thought of the book. We will also have the next book available for you to pickup. Re- freshments will also be served. The new card contest winner for the week of Sept. 17-23 is Mary Haman. The children's story time will also be starting on Oct. 6 after school at 3:30 p.m.. This is open to all children preschool through second or third grade. Stories and a craft will be done. New in Romance is Emilie Richards' "Sunset Bridge". Five very different women-Tracy, a former so- cialite who has discovered that she's pregnant; Wanda, a waitress turned pie shop owner; Janya, a young Indian wife dealing with an arranged mar- riage; Alice, a widow raising her tween granddaughter; and Maggie, a former Miami cop--find love and friendship on the barrier island of Happiness Key. Also new is Karen Robards' "Justice". Taking a job with a prestigious D.C. law firm after witnessing the murder of the first lady, attorney Jessica Ford in- vestigates a high-profile rape victim's suspicious recant on the stand, a situa- tion that is complicated by the disap- pearance of Jessica's predeccor. The book club will be meeting on Tuesday, September 27 at 7 p.m. at the library to review the book "May Day" by Jess Lourey. Refreshments will be served. Come and meet the rest of the group who have read the book and see what they think of it. The book for the month of October is a non-fiction book called "Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil" by Deborah Ro- driguez. Books will be available the first week of October to pick up. In 2002, just months after the Tal- iban had been driven out of Afghanistan, Rodriguez, a hairdresser from Holland, MI, joined a small non- governmental aid organization on a mission to the war-torn nation. That visit changed her life. In Kabul, she chronicles her efforts to help establish the country's first modern beauty school and training salon; along with music and kite-flying, hairdressing had been banned under the previous regime. This memoir offers a glimpse into a world Westerners seldom see- life behind the veil. Rodriguez was en- tranced with the delightful personalities that emerged when her students re- moved their burqas behind closed doors, but her book is also a tale ofem- powerment-both for her and the women. In a city with no mail service, she went door-to-door to recruit stu- dents from clandestine beauty shops, and there were constant efforts to shut her down. She had to convince Afghan men to work side by side with her to unpack cartons of supplies donated from the U.S. The students, however, are the heroines of this memoir. Women denied education and seldom allowed to leave their homes found they were able to support themselves and their families. Rodriguez's experi- ences will delight readers as she re- counts such tales as two friends acting as parents and negotiating a dowry for her marriage to an Afghan man or her students puzzling over a donation of a carton of thongs. Most of all, they will share her admiration for Afghan women's survival and triumph in chaotic times. Women's ministry at New Life New Life Community Baptist Church, "Girlfriends" Women's Min- istry is hosting a short day teaching conference, "Releasing God's Power through Praying and Sharing".

Marilyn is a dynamic interna- tional conference and retreat speaker. She serves on several Christian min- istry boards, including America's Na- tional Day of Prayer Committee. A retired flight attendant with Northwest Airlines, Marilyn brings a down to earth style of communicating God's love to people of diverse backgrounds. The $8 registration fee includes morning coffee and muffins and a deli- cious lunch.
