Blessed Earth, in partnership with Duke Divinity School, Wake Forest University School of Divinity, and Anathoth Community Garden, is hosting a gathering titled Summoned Toward Wholeness: A Conference on Food, Farming and the Life of Faith. The conference will be held September 27-28, 2013, at Duke Divinity School.
Scripture portrays God as a gardener, farmer, and shepherd. It describes Jesus as the bread of life who invites people to the Lords table so they can learn to feed his sheep. It is hard to read the Bible and not see that God cares deeply about food and agriculture.
Join plenary speakers Ellen F. Davis, Joel Salatin, Scott Cairns, and Blessed Earth’s Will Samson, and 12 workshop leaders, as we explore multiple connections between food, farming, and the life of faith. Discover how a concern for food and agriculture can deepen faith and heal our lands and communities.
