OnPoint on WACH: Praying, fasting and spiritual discipline

COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - On this week's edition of OnPoint on WACH we look at praying, fasting and spiritual discipline.

Many people practice Lent around the world and look forward to the challenge of abstaining from certain vices for weeks.

It could range anywhere from giving up alcohol to not eating meat, chocolate or whatever you feel needs to be purged from your life.

Isn't Lent really about spiritual discipline and possibly hitting the reset button to your inner self so you can be more attuned with God? What happens when you don't have that kind of control? Do all religions practice fasting? Can non-believers practice this and bene?t as well?

We talk to local spiritual leaders about these issues and how they can impact our daily lives.
