One of the primary reasons we launched the Imagining Space campaign was that, in an age of so much virtual interaction, we realize the distinct value of just being in the same place with other people. There’s simply no substitute for learning and loving in the presence of actual eyes and ears and physical embrace.
Since we can’t invite you all to a *cino space (yet!) to talk about food and faith issues, Rob and I are taking to the road this summer. We’ll travel throughout the midwestern U.S. and southern Ontario on the Eat Well Food Tour, a partnership between *culture is not optional and the Christian Reformed Office of Social Justice. We plan to visit farms and farmer’s markets, conduct food and storytelling workshops at churches, explore local food networks and chronicle the whole thing on the tour blog. And hopefully we’ll have some good food and great conversation along the way!
If we’re coming to a town near you, please get in touch or just show up. We’ll be updating the schedule as events are confirmed.
