Prayer & Fasting
January 2, 2015 • Matthew 6:1-6 & Matthew 6:16-18
Some years back a book was written with the intriguing title How to Be a Christian without Being Religious. The book made the important point that Christianity is, at its heart, about a relationship, not a religion. But, of course, Christians also are religious. You can’t really be a Christian without being religious and all relationships need nurturing to thrive. Everyone has to live out what they believe somehow; so today on Groundwork we’re discussing prayer and fasting, two ways we can nurture our relationship with God on which Jesus Christ himself provides us guidance.
