Eat Fat, Drink Sweet Wine, Send Portions

To read the first part, eat fat,  of this title you might be forgiven if you thought that the post might be some sort of reactionary rant against the new Canada Food Guide. Instead, what you’re going to get is another sermon. The title is a collapsing of Nehemiah 8:10. This was the Old Testament…
