Becoming Bread: The Spirituality of Cooking

In hot butter, onions, carrots, and celery become a fragrant mirepoix. Over hot coals, hearty cuts of raw meat caramelize into delicious steaks. Thrust into a hot oven, balls of dough bake into tall loaves of bread. The act of cooking may seem a daily mundane task, but it can become a window into how God loves us, feeds us, and transforms us. Come experience cooking as a catalyst for diving deeper into our own spirituality as it touches our everyday life. We will cook, read, eat, learn, and reflect together.
