We love to eat!  (or at least most of us do) So the idea to go without eating for any length of time is one that we very quickly dismiss.  What could possibly the purpose of going without food?  Yet as we turn our attention to scripture, there seems to be a call to this concept called fasting.  There seems to be something important on a spiritual level of going without food.  But why?  What is it?  What does it really accomplish?  It’s to this topic we turn our attention as we try to process and ponder what implications the spiritual discipline of fasting might have for us even today.
