It has been a tradition in many faith traditions for adherents to fast. Fasting sharpens the mind and the spirit and demonstates a commitment to values more important than physical gratification.
Could you fast from shopping for a day to demonstrate an appreciation for our planet and a respect for the interdependent web of all existence which we humans are destroying by our zealous overconsumption and misuse for profit?
Take a day off. Spend some time with family, friends, and neighbors.
Join me in taking a break from shopping. Consider it a Unitarian Universalist Holy Day during which we pay homage to that which we consider more important than more stuff.
