Fasting or feasting?

by on June 26, 2012

I sat listening to Sunday’s sermon about God inviting us in to share his banquet. Jesus expresses this powerfully by eating with sinners. The Pharisees want him to fast, and hate how he eats with the unclean ones.

And I found myself wondering,which has been a bigger part of the Christian tradition of spirituality: feasting – or fasting? Embrace, or exclusion. Partying with company, or parting company?

Which one seems more godly to you: fasting, or feasting?
