Connections – the intersection between Food, Spirituality and Community

Social media has connected us to a vast world of different peoples and communities, and yet so many feel disconnected and alone. Our gatherings seek to connect us at the basic levels of our hunger for actual food and our need for real spirituality. Each month, we will gather around a different food and reflect upon the spirituality connected to that food. What are their aromas and tastes and what memories do those experiences remind us of? In doing this, we will be able to look at community in a more intentional way. No matter where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
