As we continue our series for Lent 2023, pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve continue to look at new ways to consider traditional spiritual practices and disicplines people may take up in these forty days.  While many people are familiar with the idea of fasting from food--at least as a concept--the idea of other kinds of fasts can be helpful, too, as we take an inventory of what really matters in our life and our time.  One way of reframing the notion of fasting is to consider a fast of our time--to decide to use some of our time differently for this season, in order to reprioritize what matters, or to remove distractions and see how they help us to focus on listening for God's voice in our lives.  That could mean a changed relationship with your smart-phone or all the screens in your life, a new time for prayer or devotion when you would have otherwise been binge-watching or doomscrolling, or some other "fast" that goes beyond food.  If you're intrigued, join us for this conversation here on Crazy Faith Talk.
