our themes for weeks 3 and 4 are hunger/fasting and temptation.
we've heard and read a lot about hunger in the developing world, but hunger when it is associated with fasting is quite different. isn't it? hunger when you have no control is tough, surely self-inflicted hunger is easy to manage? plus there's the positive approach to hunger; the desire for more knowledge to be consumed. i hope this is explored on the blog.
we'll also look at temptation, something we all experience often daily and maybe succumb to too easily.
again, these themes are inspired by the experiences that jesus encountered in the desert.
