I often find in group meetings and classes with my Methodist brothers and sisters these day that there is not much awareness about John Wesley’s thoughts on fasting.  In fact, in my Today’s Disciples classes, when we start to discuss holiness, many people just plain react negatively to fasting.   I am attaching a link to a good blog entry by Rev. Irvin J. Boudreaux on this topic.



About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
