Mindful Eating

Jun 26, 2022
Field of green corn plants


Wendell Berry--Kentucky farmer, writer, and activist--said, “Eating is an agricultural act.” It is also a spiritual act. How, when, what, and why, are questions that when asked about our food and eating, can transform a necessary and habitual act into a form of resistance, love, and even prayer.


God, who gave us plants and animals to eat and water to drink,
who instituted an edible sacrament,
reveal to us the power of the act.
Help us to make wise decisions around our food
honoring your creation and ultimate plan.


Support your neighbor and encourage sustainability this week by buying ingredients for a meal from a local farmer.
