Pastor Daniel Xisto gives a sermon on fasting as described in Isaiah 58. He combines important theological insights with practical ways to live out the teaching.
Daniel Xisto is the pastor of Church Operations & Community Engagement at the Tacoma Park Seventh-day Adventist Church in Maryland.
There is an audio problem in the first two minutes, but it clears up quickly, so I hope it won’t be a distraction.
Also, the end of the sermon covers an event specific to the Tacoma Park congregation, but I left it in this episode because it demonstrates how a local church can get engaged with its community. I hope it stimulates your own thoughts on how you can impact your community.
You may remember Daniel Xisto from episode 11 of this podcast, when I interviewed him about his congregations response to the racial violence in Charlottesville, VA, where he was a pastor in 2017. If you haven’t heard that conversation, I encourage you to check it out. Adventist Today has also featured Daniel in two articles:
- Urban Mission and Ministry Congress (September 2018)
- Andrews University Social Consciousness Summit (April 2013)
Daniel’s sermon on fasting as described in Isaiah 58 can also be viewed on YouTube.
