Spiritual Practice of the Month: FASTING
Fasting is not a modern concept; in fact, the practice has been around for many centuries. A linguistical study of the word "fast" reveals its evolution from the original Hebrew word "tsowm," which literally means "to cover or to close ones mouth." By strict interpretation, its meaning is to "not eat." While the denial of food for a brief period of time is still the central form of practice, other means of sacrifice have arisen. (It is wise to consult a medical doctor when considering the practice of fasting.) (Graphic by Lt. Col. Chad Bellamy)
