Recovery Room: The Two Fasts

Welcome to the Recovery Room. Here, we'll discuss the things that supplant inner sobriety, and connectedness to an abiding God. Couldn’t we all use a little recovery from something?

Each Sunday evening, our small church gathers under the warehouse roof. There, we share a meal, laugh, and pray through an evening service that includes a short teaching (or "homily," as some of you might like to call it). This Sunday evening, I had the privilege of teaching on fasting and its relation to my personal recovery from alcohol addiction. Today, I'd like to share it with you.

Imagine yourself there, in that quiet candlelit space. Imagine yourself filled with grand food, good community, and great joy. Imagine yourself sitting with friends in a warehouse. And listen.

In the most recent Tiny Letter (my once-a-month, insider newsletter delivered straight to your email), I'm discussing the Lenten season, the darkness of my heart, and the discipline of quiet reflection. If you sign up today, you'll receive a FREE DOWNLOAD of the song "Train Wreck." It's a song I wrote about pain, loss, and the love of God.
