Food and Faith
A while back Rosemary Lane over at Loyola Press contacted me and told me about this really cool series about Catholic Arts and Faith. I want to share it with you. It is called Food and Faith. This series features over 30 stories about people like you and I who express their faith in different ways. The series runs all this month.
There are so many ways we invite celebration into our lives. There are so many references to eating and celebrating faith in the bible. None is more poignant to me than the wedding feast at Cana, where Jesus turned water into wine. That communal eating reminds us of the Lords Supper in which we all become one with each other and Christ.
This series shows us the private and public ways faith speaks to us. It inspires us to express our faith in our own individual way. It reveals to everyone how we show Arts and Faith in a new and exciting way.
How fitting for this series to end on Thanksgiving day. It is the Eucharist which in Greek means to give Thanks, that we are reminded how we as individuals give God thanks and praise.
