Fasting is one of the disciplines of discipleship that we don’t seem to work on with the same conviction as prayer or serving or worship. Yet it is so important in our struggle with the “passions;” our appetites that involve our bodies. The Christ Church sermon page has some helpful resources in the document section in addition to the manuscript and audio of the teaching, Fasting for the World. A recent book I recommend is Fasting: Spiritual Freedom Beyond Our Appetites. Great title that summarizes the motivation for fasting. There is a wealth of resources from the Eastern church. Here is an example from my friend, Frederica who I quote about jelly donuts in the sermon. She also explains the Wednesday, Friday practice of a limited fast practiced by Christians down through the centuries.
