Quotable Sunday: Meditation on Eating


"We eat to live, it is true. But we also eat to remember where we came from, or to experience a connection with those who first fed us, or to find a place within a new culture, or to celebrate one that has been passed to us from hand to hand, cook by cook. We ask the food we eat to meet many hungers: the hungers of our body and the hungers of our memory, our hunger for community, and our hunger for home."

-Stephanie Paulsell in Honoring the Body: Meditations on a Christian Practice
