Fasting is More Than a Diet

Fasting is More Than a Diet


Is gluttony a real thing? Can food do more than nourish you? Is the fast a diet or something more? Listen as Fr. Chris discusses fasting with Fr. Patrick Irish of Saint Mark Antiochian Orthodox Christian, Irvine, CA. It’s not too late! This will be an inspiration to a healthier (both spiritually and physically) Lent.

But first, listen as Fr. Chris speaks with Fr. Moses Berry of Theotokos “Unexpected Joy” Orthodox Church in Ash Grove, Missouri. They discuss Fr. Moses’ journey to Orthodoxy and the Brotherhood of St. Moses the Black, a group of Orthodox Christians who are committed to multi-racial, pan-Orthodox fellowship, and study of the ancient African roots of our faith.
