Fasting (2018.02.25 Sermon)

February 25th, 2018

John Chandler

John Chandler continues our Lent series on Patterns: Five Habits for Weaving a Life Like Jesus with a sermon on Fasting.


  • “A fast is the self-denial of normal necessities in order to intentionally attend to God in prayer. Bringing attachments and cravings to the surface opens a place for prayer. This physical awareness of emptiness is the reminder to turn to Jesus who alone can satisfy.” — Adele Calhoun

To share in the learning of these habits with each other, we have created this reflection guide. This offers all of us space to reflect on each of these habits, as well as guide our Community Group discussions during the season of Lent. Printed versions are also available in liturgy.

Join a Community Group to continue the discussion.
