Throughout the year, here will be classes on Wednesday nights for all ages.
The Lenten study is “Come to the Table”
2019 Lenten Wednesdays: 5:30 – 7:30 PM — Supper & Program
March 13: Mini Local Food Fair. Hear from Sarah Geurkink, Production Manager of MSU’s Student Organic Farm, and Kat Logan, Exchange Food Hub and Veggie Box Manager with Allen Neighborhood Center, about opportunities to find local food year-round. Learn why you should consider eating more local food and how to do it.
March 20: What will be in the Fields Tomorrow? Enjoy and participate in this group reading – reader’s theatre – that addresses contemporary issues of American farmers. Where will future farmers come from? When are food and commodity the same? Different? Does a rural lifestyle still exist? What are roles for women in agriculture?
March 27: Food and Faith: A Theology of Eating. Watch, listen and ponder issues raised by Dr. Norman Wirzba, Professor of Theology, Ecology, and Agrarian Studies at Duke Divinity School, in his April 2018 presentation at Yale Divinity School. Dr. Wirzba is the author of a book by the same name.
April 3: Hunger Awareness Meal. Experience the reality of food distribution inequities and poverty. Consider ways we are called to make changes.
April 10: World Café: Food Workers. After a short video, consider and discuss how the workers involved in bringing us food should factor into our food choices. Who pays a high price for cheap food? What does it mean to “vote with your fork”?
All are welcome. Supper is potluck. Please sign up in advance to bring soup or salad or bread.
Tune in here for announcements about future classes as they are decided upon.
