Sunday for Christians is always a feast, just as Friday is traditionally always a fast–each week, through our eating, we celebrate the death and resurrection of Christ. On Friday we ate nothing, as we realized the emptiness of a world without Jesus, but now on Sunday we celebrate as though it is a wedding feast and the happy couple have arrived. So eat something sweet, drink a little, eat for happiness as much as health. We Christians are not known enough for our parties and that is a disgrace to the Gospel. So invite others to join you–we feast every Sunday!
Party Like It’s Sunday
