      Part devotional, part (lay-level) sociological study on farming and food, this book challenges us to eat compassionately and hospitably. It confronts us with how our food choices affect others and our own spirituality. While the reality of how most people in the U.S. eat, meaning the food we buy, is scary and disastrous for ourselves, our neighbor (the Samaritan definition of neighbor), and the creation we are tasked with caring for, McMinn doesn't leave us in despair but offers hope in our Rede [...]

      Interested in social justice? What about the treatment of animals? Do you know your neighbors?The author uses the dining table as a means of conversation about learning where food comes from and how it arrives on our tables.

      I have typically found issues around food justice to be overwhelming and that, if I learn too much, I’ll feel guilt-tripped into spending money I don’t have on organic food 100% of the time.

      A very interesting read. I did agree with many of her conclusions of the importance of quality food, knowing where your food came from and how it was made, the love and care that goes into a meal and how much a family can and even needs to bond over daily meals and practice thankfulness. Jesus Himself did also talk extensively about food and used it to illustrate many things, that he is the bread of life and of all things 1 Corinthians 5 describes when we are not to associate with sexually immor [...]

      I really enjoyed this thoughtful look at eating, food, and stewardship. I'm not sure I completely agree with everything she says (and I would also like to know more about the Canadian context for some of the issues she brings up), but it has certainly made me pause and evaluate many of my own choices and values.
