Food: Creation, Community, and Communion

Eating is one of the most profound ways by which we relate to each other, to the created world, and to God. In this course we will explore, within the framework of Christian theology, some of the biological, ecological, psychological, aesthetic, spiritual, agricultural, historical, economic, and ethical aspects of what, why, and how we eat. The core of the course will be readings, lectures, excursions and discussion exploring a thoughtful Christian engagement with many dimensions of the production, distribution, preparation, and consumption of food. We will spend time together each weekend engaging these topics in a living context of worshipping, cooking, feasting, fasting, and gardening together. 

Enrollment Limit: 16
