Nancy Dean's 30-day fast is a sign of support for U.S. soldiers, and of disgust with government's actions.
...
Nancy Dean was feeling decadent.She sipped seltzer water.
An invocation was in order.Dean, the minister at the Unitarian Universalist Society of Mill Creek, had been summoned to the Gold Ballroom of the Hotel du Pont to deliver a blessing April 1 at the 2006 Common Wealth Awards before consumption began.She enjoyed her bubbly water and left before the arrival of Viennese desserts.
...
Dean, a tall woman in her mid-50s with an average build, delights in the communal nature of food.
Her invocation, though, fell on Day 13 of her self-imposed 30-day fast.From March 20 through April 19, nothing would touch her stomach but water.
The short answer to the obvious question -- why? -- is Iraq.
Dean decided to mark the third anniversary of the American-led invasion of Iraq with a demonstration against "what I see as an increasingly unethical administration," she says."Because ethics is the foundation of my faith.It isn't something I take lightly."
At its March 19 service, she quietly told her congregation of her fast.She did so after leading the segment called "Joys and Sorrows," during which people can share such thoughts before lighting a candle.Dean spoke of her respect for the American soldiers who have risked or lost their lives in Iraq.As a sign of support for them and of her disgust with the government's handling of the war, she said, she would fast for 30 days.
Sunlight shot across the sanctuary as Dean lit a candle.
...
Dean first fasted as a college student in 1969, when she spent a week without food to protest the war in Vietnam.And for at least the past 15 years, during annual spiritual retreats, she has fasted for one to two weeks.
Before she began, her doctor tested her blood.He is kept aware of her progress, but Dean checks her own blood pressure every two to three days.
She drinks one to three quarts of water per day, sipping throughout.The first couple of days, she felt miserable.She was hungry.Her head ached.
The fog cleared by the fourth day.Fasting burns carbohydrates within a day, then moves on to muscles for protein and taps into fat reserves.
Although experts say fasting has not been proven to cleanse the body of toxins, Dean and others who fast claim feelings of mental and spiritual clarity after going without food.
Meanwhile, Dean's usual daily allotment of four miles, walked fast, has become two miles, strolled.On Day 19, she looks healthy.She's lost about 19 pounds, or about a pound a day.That's normal for her.When she returns to her usual eating habits, she'll gain it back.
She'll do so slowly.Breaking a fast can be more troublesome than holding to one.
Dean learned that several years ago.Ten days into what was to have been a 14-day fast, she prepared a turkey sandwich for her husband.It found her stomach.She grew ill.Her body, accustomed to the absence of food, needed time to readjust.
"Midnight of the 19th," Dean says, "I probably will be looking for a glass of tomato juice."
A 30-day fast, she says, restricts her for 60 days.And although the sight of food can stir her want, she feels no hunger in the presence of no food.
"When you have the discipline to turn away from food," she says, "your body gets cleansed in a lot of ways, but your mind really gets clear, too.
...
Dean, the hungry minister, has a son.He interrupted college to join the Air Force within weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks.Adam was among the crew on a cargo plane that transported people and equipment into Afghanistan and Iraq.He safely returned in 2004 and went back to school.
Her nephew, a National Guard reservist, wasn't so lucky.A rocket-propelled grenade hit his vehicle, severely injuring his right leg.
And so Dean fasts, "a tiny penance for the mistakes we are making in this war."
Dean doesn't claim that her entire congregation feels the war is wrong.When she lit the candle after announcing her fast, she asked those present not to agree with her but to keep her in their thoughts.
No one approached her with a negative comment.
People like Robertson can't help but think about her sacrifice each time he sits for a meal.
"It really makes me think about the world," he says."What's going on.How people are affected, and how people aren't affected."
One week after her invocation at Hotel du Pont, Dean roasted a turkey and delivered a blessing at her church's annual Fellowship Dinner.She did not eat.
"Maybe for my own well-being I downplay the difficulty of it," she says.
