Conversatio Divina

Fasting, Feasting, and Lent

This week our theme is Ancient Christian Spirituality. If you are new to Converatio you may not realize that our aim is to celebrate a variety of voices on authentic Christian spiritual formation that have stood the test of time.

In our Telling Time in Church series, Jamie Cain offers two essays.

The first titled, The Role of Feasting in Spiritual Practice, is the third part in a series on a spirituality of fasting and feasting in the church’s calendar. It explores the role of feasting and celebration in spiritual practice.

His second featured essay is titled Then They Will Fast, and it explores preparations for Lent.

We also want to remind you of the wonderful work of Fr Alexis Kouri and his ministry helping to lead listeners through a reading of the entire Bible in one year, with his brief reflections on the passages.
