Week Nine :: Aug. 19–27
Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Food and Faith
Eating is essential for life, but it is so much more. All cultures have developed rituals around food and eating that shape the life patterns and rhythms of family and communal life, and religions also utilize food for spiritual nourishment in sacred meals, religious dictums for self-discipline, and for the formation of communal identity. This week will be a rich and full exploration into the relationship between food and faith.
