Description

 

 

What does food have to do with my faith? This four-part video series explores the relation of food to the Christian faith. The series, created by former Regent student Theran Knighton-Fitt, explores this question through a series of interviews and personal exploration with Loren Wilkinson and students who attended a course co-taught by Loren and Mary-Ruth Wilkinson on the relationship of food to the Christian faith.

In addition to the video episodes, this series includes a discussion guide so that you can watch and discuss it together in a small group.

The video series is composed of the following four episodes:

EP 1: Why is it important for Christians to think about food?

This episode explores the basis for why Christians should consider their food choices a key aspect of what it means to be a Christian. It does this by journeying with the narrator as he leaves his home in the city to go and consider this question more deeply as part of a two-week course on this topic out at Galiano Island.




EP 2: What does a healthy approach to food look like?
This episode considers what a Christian posture towards food might look like. In doing this it draws upon aspects of the Eucharist and humanity's calling to be priests amongst creation. It also considers the role of feasting and fasting as part of a Christian response to food.

EP 3: How have we fallen short in our priesthood?
This episode focuses on the ways that humanity has fallen short in its call to be priests of creation through consideration of the various factors at play in food production and what alternatives might look like. This includes interviews.

EP 4: How then should we eat?
This episode synthesizes the learning from the previous episodes by showing how Christians are think about conflicting goods when thinking about food. It concludes with the narrator returning to his home in the city and see how his food choices have changed as a result of this time.
