Announcements, January 15, 2016
A strong thread running through Matthew 6 is Jesus' exhortation to seek the reward of the Father rather than the reward of this world. This Sunday that thread continues as Jesus instructs us on fasting in Matthew 6:16-18. Fasting is one of those topics that doesn't get discussed that much and is often misunderstood. What is the purpose of fasting? Should it be a regular part of the Christian life? Looking forward to unpacking this text with you Sunday!
