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.

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.

On my two choice Enneagram test I scored an 88 as a number…Continue readingCommon Eating – 2 – Marking

Not that I necessarily disagree with what I wrote, but that I find my approach to some matters a little changed in the interim. One more thing I have noticed since the start of the pandemic. Eating alone on a regular basis, makes it harder to keep my focus on the amounts I eat at each meal.…Continue readingKeeping the Ferial
Eucharistic Eating Bibliography When a book features a link, it is to a review I have written on this blog. If you go through my reading round ups, you will find some more books featuring shorter reviews. Starting on Monday, March 6, I will be leading a lecture series through the six weeks of Lent, entitled Eucharistic Eating. The purpose of the class is to look at how we can bring our everyday eating into the Eucharist and the Eucharist into…Continue readingEucharistic Eating – Bibliography
