Ricci Kilmer will be hosting the seminar Justice at the Table again here at the Mustard Seed House in Seattle. I was really impacted by what she shared at this event last year and am looking forward to attending again. I think that this is a great topic to be challenged by during the season of Lent.
Where our food comes from, how it is produced and who we invite to eat with us at the table are all important issues that we need to grapple with. Issues of fair trade, use of pesticides, poverty and sustainable lifestyles are all justice issues that revolve around the table and Ricci has some wonderful insights on these.
We will explore together the intricate connections between our faith and the food we eat. We will challenge ourselves and each other to bring our eating and buying practices more in line with our beliefs and draft a “Justice at the Table Plan” to help us implement the changes we hope to make.
