More on Fasting
We hope you are all looking forward to the fast, which will begin at sundown this coming Friday, with excited anticipation. We will fast from sundown on Friday, January 13th, until sundown of the following day, January 14th. We will have a prayer meeting on Friday night at 7pm for those who can make it. This is a great opportunity for us to seek God, labor in prayer, and set aside the desires of the flesh for greater things.
In this email there are two links below. One is a link to an online book, which is free to download. It is "A Hunger for God", which was written by John Piper. It is a good book on fasting, and I would encourage you to read at least the introduction.
The second link is an overview of fasting by Bill Bright. Bill Bright was the founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, and was known for his emphasis on fasting. He brings a wealth of experience and practical thought.
