This year, we're entering into Holy Week one day at a time. Holy Saturday invites us into the place between the pain and the promise. Morgan leads us in a reflection of how often life can seem like a Holy Saturday, in-between reality, and how we might meet Jesus in all that is unresolved.
Fasting has been a part of the Judeo-Christian tradition for millenia. We see it used throughout the bible. In fact, Jesus began his ministry with forty days of fasting! Fasting is used for a variety of reasons, one of those reasons being to empty ourselves so to focus more intently on God.
