Food, Farms, and Faith
February 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Food, Farms and Faith class will explore our relationship with food as consumers and as Christians. Our relationship with food seems to be important to God. Food is mentioned in the Bible 1,207 times. 18 of Jesus’ 39 parables include references to food. Many Christians say a prayer before every meal to express their appreciation for the food they are about to eat. Are Christians called to do more than pray?
Trinity member John Tirrill will kick-off the series with his story of how for much of his life he mindlessly consumed food without thinking about how it was produced or raised. But in 2007, John and his daughter, Mary Holmes, began shopping weekly at the Peachtree Rd. Farmers Market and were not only welcomed, but embraced by the local farming community. John has become very involved in the regenerative farming movement; taking classes at The Center for Agricultural Resilience, the Culinary Institute of America and the Urban Land Institute in addition to serving on Georgia Organics’ board. Today, John does his best to make food choices that are aligned with his faith.
