Kathryn Smith Pyle, a Sundance Institute Fellow and documentary film maker, has produced "Apple Forecast," a short documentary film in support of comprehensive immigration reform. These last few weeks have been filled with terrible reports of separation of families at our southern border. Several activist groups have called for a fast from June 24th to July 18th to protest these policies. These 24 days symbolize the approximately 2,400 migrant children that have been separated from their parents. I invite you to join in the fast as you are able on July 17th. You can sign up to fast at Break Bread Not Families, one of the organizations coordinating the fast. Perhaps we could include the following petition in our prayer that day.

God of justice, open our eyes to see you in the faces of the poor.

Open our ears to hear you in the voices of the exploited.

Open our mouths to defend you in the public square.

Remind us that what we do to the least of our brothers and sisters, we do to you. Amen
