After that, my body didn’t seem to want solid food anymore. After the first three days, I still had to deal with the habit of wanting food at mealtime and emotional hunger.
During Lent, it’s a good time to think about what God desires when we fast.

One of the rules of the forum is that it is open to everyone.
I am just wondering how progressive Christians reconcile open communion with the words of Paul: "For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, "Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
