Fasting – Christine Valters Paintner

February 26, 2018

“Fasting isn’t just for its own sake.  When we fast from food, we are called to become keenly aware of our relationship to food and to pay attention to our own hungers.  When we fast from the comforts of our lives, the invitation is to stretch ourselves and become present to what happens when we don’t have our usual securities to rely upon.”
