The title I gave the "life talk" I offered in Ordinary Life this week was "Fasting and Feasting." Both words - fasting and feasting - are metaphors for our religious and spiritual work. If we see one of our main purposes in life to be to grow spiritually and psychologically, we must immerse ourselves in both.
Fasting is the disciples we uses to grow in knowledge and wisdom.
Feasting is the celebratory lifestyle we live of freedom, love, compassion and justice.
I elaborate on both of these in the talk. Also, as part of the class experience I passed our a "test" so that those in attendance could evaluate their religious and biblical literacy.
