Theology of Food - Eat, Drink & Be Merry

Conference Theology of Food - Eat, Drink & Be Merry
November 2 2019

1:00pm - 7:00pm 

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. Through readings, course lectures, excursions, and discussions we shall explore a thoughtful Christian engagement on the dimensions of the production, distribution, preparation, and consumption of food. We will spend time engaging these topics in the context of worshipping, feasting, fasting, and cooking together.
