Pardon me if this has been aired before!
We, in the Julian calendar Chalcedonian churches are beginning the Apostles fast today-a week after you.
I think we have the same principles as you but its unclear to me how strict I should be with regards to doing without. Since I suffer discomfort if I don't drink should I trust in the Lord and not drink til whenever? After all I don't drink until mid Sunday afternoon when I receive the Holy Mysteries. If I am dining out and cannot find any vegan food on a day when no fish is eaten, do I go ahead and eat fish?
Without being legalistic and instead keeping our eyes on the blessings (which western Christians miss out on), how do YOU (guys) actually fast?
Please pray that Christ's people may be one.
