Lent: The Tradition and Benefit of Fasting
This week, youth leader Jason Lahey talks about the importance of rituals and traditions, and the ritual/tradition of fasting during Lent, not for the purpose of God keeping pleasure from us but for the purpose of enhancing God's pleasurable gifts to us. Jodi Turnbough also shared a "My Story" experience as it related to leaving a comfortable situation for the unknown but trusting in God to enhance her life beyond her own plans.
Since the video was based on the indigenous (native) New Zealand Maori tribal traditional dance, it is more effective visually than orally. You can see it on YouTube if you look up "Haka wedding."
