You Have Heard It Said

A big part of my job is blessing and serving the Eucharist. The Christian faith is imminently tied up in food — right there at the center of Christian worship is God giving his people bread and wine, it’s the whole Gospel summed up in a simple action. Christianity is a religion of feasting with God and neighbor.

I read about the Welcome Wagon in an issue off Paste a while back and can’t wait to check them out. A theology of food (perhaps all theology) begins with a sacred meal.
