"We are all created with a need for community, for intimacy, and for companionship." — Kendall Vanderslice
How can the simple act of eating together draw us more fully into relationship with God and community? Join us for this conversation with baker and writer Kendall Vanderslice as we discuss table fellowship, vocational discernment, and the joy of food.
Let me invite you into a conversation with Kendall Vanderslice — baker, writer, and public theologian. I first became aware of Kendall when I read of a bread-baking workshop in which she teaches participants to bake as a form of prayer. Workshops like these are one of the offerings from Edible Theology, an educational ministry founded by Kendall that connects the Communion table to tables we eat at every day. As I’ve explored Kendall’s work — including her new podcast, Kitchen Meditations, and her book about the dinner church movement — I’ve been challenged to think more deeply about the spiritual implications of eating and sharing good food — an activity that is near and dear to my heart. In our conversation, Kendall and I talk about life in academia, the gift of community, her thoughts on living life wholeheartedly as a single person — and yes, we get into a few recipes as well. So have a listen! We're so glad you're here.
