Mobile Hospitality – Common Eating

Mobile hospitality is another take on what we think about when we talk about hospitality.  When I first wrote about mobile hospitality, I was thinking about how we can be hospitable, when we find ourselves, as Christians, in a public setting. Then, Covid-19 hit. Over the last two years, I’ve been thinking more about: How can we take food with us, and offer hospitality to those who don’t have much to eat.  First of all, I don’t think that practicing…Continue readingMobile Hospitality – Common Eating

Common Eating – The Eucharist

Since I last updated this post on the Eucharist, I’ve discovered that Google likes posts that are at least 1,200 words in length. As a result I’m going through a lot of my old posts to see if I can find ways to reach that baseline number. Some of them have been quite easy as they were already over a 1,000 words. Some, like this one, will take a fair bit more work if I hope to reach the goal.…Continue readingCommon Eating – The Eucharist

Common Eating – The Meal Itself.

This cookbook is the greatest contribution of Mennonites to the world, well, greatest after Pioneer Farmers Sausage, and Shmaunt Fat. I also think that I will…Continue readingCommon Eating – The Meal Itself.

For this course the latter part of that statement is the more important. The reason that the course is called “Common Eating.” is my belief that the most important function of food is to bring us together around the…Continue readingCommon Eating – Introduction and Overview.

Common Eating (Meals)

Common Eating is an idea for a university or seminary type course that has been sitting in the back of my mind for several years now. Over the next several weeks I hope to go through each of those posts and update and rethink my way through them. I’ll be leaving each new post at the top of my blog for a few days. Any new material will be printed in bold. The original post and the first update can…Continue readingCommon Eating (Meals)

Common Eating – Gathering up the Crumbs

I’ve finally come to the final post in this series on common eating, although I may do one more with the pdf form of all the posts if anyone wants to have them all in one place.  Again, as has happened at other times during this series I’m not sure that I have come up with the correct name for this last class.  My original idea was to call it leftovers, but that sounded a little to cheesy, even for…Continue readingCommon Eating – Gathering up the Crumbs
