Do you believe that Anglicans should observe a fast prior to receiving Holy Communion or do not need to observe a fast? If you believe in observing a Communion fast, why do you think we should fast before receiving Holy Communion? Alternatively, if you do not believe a fast is necessary why do you believe this? The remaining questions are aimed at those who believe we should fast. For how long prior to reception of Holy Communion do you believe we should fast? Do you believe there are things which do not break the fast, e.g. water, medicine, etc? Are there people you believe are able to either observe a shorter fast or who can be exempt from the fast, e.g. infirm, elderly, their carers, etc? Please add any comments you think would help to expand on your answers. Thank you for answering my questions. N.B. This is neither a poll nor survey; it is not for any research I am doing; it is simply to satisfy my curiosity about what fellow Anglicans think about fasting before Holy Communion.
