Food & Farming
A central reason why food decisions ought to be faith decisions is that the choices we make about food dramatically effect the larger creation and our fellow human beings. In a world where seasons no longer prevent us from eating our favorite foods and where meals often come out of a box, the connection to the soil, habitats, creatures and humans who cultivate and provide the components of our food often get forgotten.
Additionally, the economic and social structures that surround food have long been steeped in injustice. With complex systems of producers, buyers, harvesters and transporters we may settle into the belief that unjust food patterns are too big to change. Yet, thankfully our God is not blind to how these patterns are formed and perpetuated and our God is not too small for the task.
