Taste and See that the Lord is Good: A Celebration of Food and Community

As theologian Norman Wirzba writes, “We can never only bite into one thing. Food is about the relationships that join us to the earth, fellow creatures, loved ones and guests, and ultimately God.” This evening of feasting together, co-sponsored by community partners, combines the best of a home-grown potluck with the richness of spiritual reflection. Come for the meal and, if you are able, bring something to share—as long as it has a story: Grandma’s recipe, harvest from your garden, foraged mushrooms, fish your children caught, or honey from your bees? Imagine the flavors and conversations. Then, if you like, stay for a lovely musical prayer in the style of Taizé. Because this event has been underwritten by generous sponsors, half of all donations will benefit the ministry of Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf.

This potluck event is part of a weekend-long series of events related to Food & Faith:

(Friday) Of the Garden: Serving and Reflecting at Farm and Food Shelf
