Food Faith Mission
May 16-19, 2017
“Food is a gift of God given to all creatures for the purposes of life’s nurture, sharing, and celebration. When it is done in the name of God, eating is the earthly realization of God’s eternal communion-building love.”
From Norman Wirzba, Food and Faith: A Theology of Eating. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2011.
“Like infants with their mothers, we’re helpless before the God who feeds us, cares for us and embraces us with even greater devotion than that of a loving mother with nursing babies.” Does a nursing babe have to “be good” to earn that love-to deserve that tender, intimate feeding? No. He has only to open his mouth and be fed. And so with us.”
From Rachel Marie Stone, Eat with Joy: Redeeming God’s Gift of Food, InterVarsity Press, 2013
Our keynote speakers:
Norman Wirzba and Rachel Marie Stone, will bring careful reflection on the vital connections between congregations, outreach and food. Food ministry practitioners will help us think about engaging in food ministry/mission projects in our respective congregations and communities.
