Why Every Christian Should Fast

All of us have had a nurse say, “No food or liquids after midnight.” We sigh. Good grief, “How can I manage?”

We go to bed, midnight passes, and we wake up to count the hours until the medical procedure is completed so we can eat, drink, and be merry again.

For most of us, fasting before a medical procedure or test defines our full experience of fasting.

However, fasting has long been an important spiritual discipline in the Christian faith.

Every Christian should fast.

Trying to Get in Shape, Again . . .

I have never been comfortable in my own skin. I grew up skinny and self-conscious. I am no longer skinny, by a long shot.

I need to get in shape, again.

I have never been comfortable in my own skin. I grew up guilty and self-conscious. I am still guilty by a long shot.

I need to get in shape, again.

I am on a journey and I invite you to come along.

Why We Pray . . .

I grew up believing the only good prayer was a spontaneous prayer. From the way people prayed in church, it also seemed the longer the prayer the better!

I have since learned that carefully written prayers are just as good.

Short prayers are powerful, too.

Prayers comes in many different shapes and forms, but it is critical to who we are as people of faith.

Will you pray with me?
