A caffeine fast helps us humbly realize how dependent we are on stimulants other than prayer and the presence of Jesus.
This month some will choose to abstain sodas, coffee, tea or other caffeinated drinks.
The intention of this fast is to help us realize our propensity to addiction and make us slower to criticize the addictions of others. Giving up caffeine teaches us to rely on Jesus more for attention, alertness and awakening.
NOTE: Feel free to participate with us in these fasts for part or all of the indicated month. Prayerfully select the fasts appropriate to your spiritual walk and stage of life and abstain from others. We hold a disciplined yet non-legalistic approach to fasting. Sometimes circumstances and relationships do not allow us to keep the letter of the scheduled fast. In that case we feast joyously knowing that fasting and feasting are complementary.
