It’s a really powerful practice to recognize the gift of sustenance in a world where so many people are starving – starving for food, but also starving for love, starving to belong, starving for shelter, starving for justice. We can use the gift of our hunger – and the provision to sate our hunger – as a reminder to take food as a gift, not just a given. Let food have a symbolic, iconic quality of the hungers that surround us in this world.
