The Purpose and Power of Fasting - with Conor Berry

Conor Berry is the Lead Pastor of Calvary Chapel Santa Maria on the Central Coast of California. 

In this episode we discuss what the Bible has to say about fasting. What is the purpose of fasting? How does it work? What is the relationship between fasting and prayer, and what is the "reward" of fasting mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 6:16?

We seek to answer these questions with consideration of how Christians throughout history have understood fasting, and by looking at a few modern resources as well.
