This Lent as a parish, we’re going back to a basic Christian practice—one that Jesus himself practiced, one that he commended, and one that has been the habit of Christians for centuries. We’re going to engage in some intentional fasting.
What is fasting?
Fasting is intentional abstinence from something in life that we either biologically need or will at least miss a great deal. Most often in the Scriptures and in the practices of the Church, people fast from food, but a faithful fast can include other things as well. What’s most important is that it’s something that we either need to survive (like food) or at least something of which we will be shaped by its absence.
Prompted by 80s power hits, Bishop Anthony Burton explains that the focus of our Lenten discipline this year is fasting.
