I've just been asked to host a private, secret wedding at my home. This is completely out of the blue. Questions about the couple, the circumstances, and the wisdom of this aside, we're going to support our friends' decision.
So the self-centered fasting question is, do I bail out of my fast early so that I can eat a wedding dinner with them? Do I eat lightly at only that meal and resume the fast afterwards? Do I continue the fast and experience the ceremony and dinner in the glow of mental clarity? Is it worth risking having a healing crisis that day?
