Art, Artists, and the Spiritual Disciplines: Fasting

Date recorded: 21 May 2019 | Speaker: Tim Basselin | Event: ELF Artists Network


Fasting teaches us to deny the self for the sake of the Kingdom of God. Artists tend to practice forms of fasting for the sake of their art. In carving out time to practice art, artists must deny the many demands of other aspects of life in order to bring about something new. Under-standing this practice in light of the Kingdom of God is helpful for artists. This talk explores what Christians can learn from artists about fasting and how to practice fasting more effectively.
