What is Good Friday?
Good Friday is the day that commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. The Methodist Church commemorates Good Friday with fasting as well as a worship service.
“Fasting has been a part of Methodism from its early beginnings. John Wesley considered fasting an important part of a Christian’s life and he fasted weekly.
To Wesley, fasting was an important way to express sorrow for sin and penitence for overindulgence in eating and drinking.
He believed it allowed more time for prayer and was more meaningful if combined with giving to the poor. Wesley did advise caution against extreme fasting and against fasting for those in fragile health.”
