Leaders' Training - "Just Eating: Practicing our Faith at the Table" Saturday, May 14; 9:30 am – 12:30 pm, lunch included.

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 611 Randolph St, Oak Park

Just Eating: Practicing Our Faith at the Table is a 7-session curriculum for congregational discussion groups exploring the links between the way we eat and the way we live.  Scripture, prayer, and stories from our local and global community are woven together to explore four key aspects of our relationship with food:

  • The health of our bodies
  • The challenge of hunger
  • The health of the earth that provides our food
  • The ways we use food to extend hospitality and enrich relationships.

Representatives from all congregations are welcome.  Each attendee receives "Just Eating" materials, including a Leaders’ Guide, Readings for Action and Reflection, and an adaptation for Middle School students. The Just Eating Curriculum is a collaboration of Advocate Health Care, Church World Service, and Presbyterian Hunger Program.  To register, email Jessica.TheCenter@gmail.com /call 847-384-3528
