Lights Out!

From my former "spiritual home":

“Light’s Out!” At the end of each Sunday liturgy we spend one minute in the dark to show our solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Iraq who suffer every day without the necessities of life…clean water, electricity, safety on the streets. We will continue until this war comes to an end.

This is in addition to the preceeding 60-minutes "in the dark". This is all a good thing. Keeps the evil, capitalist, support of electricity to a minimum. AND, it keeps the people from seeing all the liturgical horror.

I know, I'm a snark. But, the note just SCREAMED out for me to parody. No, I did not make it up.

Yet another attempt at "feel-good" charity. Ugh. As if sitting in the dark is going to help. PRAYING for them would help!

Curious if they pray for our soldiers in Iraq or the people of Iraq or just stand there in the dark in silence. Solidarity only goes so far.

Good points.
Unless something has changed, they do always pray for soldiers but ONLY in reference to ending the war/bringing them home. They never support their mission or what they do as soldiers. Gee, soldiers are supposed to fight? What a concept.
