This post by Ruby Sara over at No Unsacred Place begins a series on food and earth-centered ritual.
Her first footnote really resonated with me: food is complicated. And sacred.
“Well, I think it’s important that whenever we talk about food and its relationship to notions of sacrality and earth-centered religion, it’s important to note that it *is* a complicated issue, so that we can continue to hold that reality in our minds when we consider the simultaneous reality that food is sacred, and that there are legitimate questions we as earth-centered religionists can and should be asking when we consider the food we eat and how we approach it spiritually.”
There is no answer to this question that suits all of us, but I whole-heartedly agree that these questions deserve thought. See the past week’s worth of posts 😉
