Food For Thought


When you sit down to eat a meal, do you know where your food came from? Do you know the people (or animals) that helped to grow and make that food? Do you know exactly what it is that you're eating? Do we even sit down to meals anymore? These are just a few of the questions that our professors, Loren & Mary Ruth Wilkinson, led us to discuss during our God & Nature II course. From reading articles on food and care for the land, to dissecting onions, there was much to think and talk about.

Even the skin of an onion can help us learn more about our world and ourselves

In light of the fact that humans are the only creatures that feast, one of the tasks of the week was for the students to prepare a feast for us all. They did their best to acquire the most local of ingredients (some from our very own backyard), research the history of their chosen dishes, and share the kitchen space harmoniously with each other.

The results were nothing short of delicious, educational, and no doubt glorifying to the Creator.
