This is the second of a three part series about important spiritual practices that have marked the lives of followers of Jesus throughout history and in all different traditions of the church.
In this teaching we'll explore the ancient practice of fasting, withholding food from yourself for a symbolic and intentional reason. This practice marked the lives of many ancient Israelites, of Jesus himself, and it was a habit that was carried on in the early Jesus-movement as well. However, this practice was also accompanied by regular periods of feasting to celebrate God's generosity and grace.
What exactly are these habits? How do they balance with each other? Why is it important to have both? We explore these questions in this episode.
