Fasting

John Chandler reflects on how the practice of fasting can actually integrate the soul and body instead of simply denying the body [Galatians 5:16-25].

Reflection
What has been your understanding of the relationship between your spirit and your body?
What might it look like for you to incorporate a regular practice of fasting?

Resources
Book: Spiritual Disciplines Handbook (Adele Ahlberg Calhoun)

Spiritual Practice
Fasting: Pre-select a specific amount of time.  Replace prep and eating time with prayer and reflection.  Use your hunger to focus on your heart and soul rather than your belly.
