Chanelle has put together a great series at her blog called the “Real Food and Religion Series”. I wanted to share it here since it applies to both of my blogs!
Read part of her comments:
“Our real food and religion series is over. I have really enjoyed reading and learning from so many different perspectives. I found it interesting that even though some of the writers had similar religious beliefs, they translated to very different things in practice.
It’s interesting to understand why people do what they do. There are many motivating factors regarding what we eat and feed our families, and religion is just one of those. But it seems to be one that people are passionate about.”
Read the Real Food and Religion Series and comment to let me know what you thought!
Also, see Wendy’s Food & Faith Challenge! Here are some of her comments:
“Lately I find myself trying to explain to people why I would bother spending so much time cooking, or why I spend more on food instead of just buying the cheapest I can. More often than not, I find myself tongue-tied.
So then I thought, how do I explain why I try to eat locally and in season? And have I really and truly explored these issues? That was one of the reasons I started this blog.
In order to help me achieve those goals, I am announcing a virtual Food & Faith Challenge adapted from the free Simply in Season leader’s guide that’s available on the Mennonite Publishing Committee website.
I’m going to start on April 3, as many Christians have Lenten devotions that they are currently using. Even if you are not a Christian, I hope that some of these issues will be of interest to you. I’m Christian Reformed / Emerging, and the book is written by Mennonites, but these issues cut across denominations and religions.“
