Donuts and a Grumpy Deacon

I don’t want to overwhelm you with the theology of fasting. It is sufficient to remind you that scripture says, “When You Fast, NOT If You Fast.”

In my short video I’ll talk about 2 dozen donuts, a grumpy deacon and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit.

CLICK BELOW for the short video on FASTING.

The Video’s Points:

  1. Everyone can fast (confirm with your doctor first).
  2. Consider your length of fast.
  3. Watch as you become more sensitized to the Holy Spirit.

Not all of you are comfortable fasting. That’s completely understandable.

I remember a pastor telling me he couldn’t fast when I invited him to a “fasting-luncheon.”

He responded, “Oh, no, no, no. I have to eat!” And then he looked at the words that snuck out of his mouth and spent the next 30 minutes trying to reel them back in.

Too late! He’s a sermon illustration!

Try fasting, you’ll like it. You will, I promise.

For the rest of this month (February 2018), our this book is on sale.

This, our latest book, was originally published in 1928 for the 200th anniversary of the Moravian Revival. In 1727, the Moravian, Count Zinzendorf, started a prayer meeting that lasted 100 years.

We found this 90-year-old book, filled with great history of the Moravians and added encouraging, and challenging questions to turn it into an uplifting 7 week study.

Normally $14.99, this book is on sale for $8.00 this month. To purchase, click on the book cover above, or CLICK HERE.
