Today is MDG Day, people the world over are marking this Day of Prayer, Fasting and Advocacy for the MDGs.

I will be blogging all day about the Millennium Development Goals and our role in them.

You are invited to:

+Pray. Say prayers with special intention for the extreme poor throughout the world.

Loving God, whose hand is open to satisfy the needs of every living creature: Break down the barriers of ignorance, indifference, and greed, we pray, that the multitudes who hunger may share your bounty; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.

+Fast. Skip at least one meal in solidarity with the nearly 1 billion people who go to bed hungry each night. (As possible depending on health ... consult your doctor if in doubt)

+Witness. Participate in an online advocacy action promoting our government's fulfilling its promises to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.

More to come!
