Food as Holy Provision and Simple Gift

At the Center for Action and Contemplation

Lent 2011 is a time for self-examination and reflection.  Usually, "good" religious
observers eliminate sweets or other foods that distract from God.  This year, the
Center for Action and Contemplation invites you to discover food and the act of
eating as something to embrace and reclaim as a daily and sacramental action.

In 1825, the French philosopher and gourmand Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin wrote,
"Tell me what you eat, and I will tell you what you are." Since our culture has
commodified food, and eating has been reduced to a consumer act,  our hope is that
in this daily meditation, we will begin to connect more deeply to food as a soul
activity.  One that connects us with rain, sun, soil, wind, animal and the farmer
who has bent to sow, grow, and harvest the food that nourishes our collective body
and soul daily.

We have titled our Lenten Webseries:

Food asHoly Provision and Simple Gift.

We ask that you click on our Lenten link: www.cacradicalgrace.org/lenten/2011/ [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=isz87kdab&et=1104724625548&s=40098&e=001LfxCaN_U8BwXCxbNFz88QlR4KGLAeBsRXmI_2FziZ4SuzcbPUL4z-fo1lHKHv4e9ibEunnbmaA-10gWYPfunKWjngJUOe7Heb3r5rbnxC32JB0uSnY18L9gHSen3CIF22vsIV97ad3Zv1ZcXUlDIIA==]
every Wednesday, beginning with Ash Wednesday, to learn about the sanctity of food
and the act of eating. We will explore such questions as "How do we recover the
soul of food?"  "How do we build a healthier relationship and become more participatory
with our food sources and growers?"  "How can we become more conscious in choices
that involve eating?"

I couldn't get the link at the bottom to work, but I haven't spent much time on it.
