Green Lectionary Pilot - Palm Sunday

Green Lectionary Pilot - Palm Sunday

April 7, 2022

A couple of years ago, we did an episode specifically for preachers and church leaders where we talked about the upcoming lectionary passages for Advent and tried to look at them through the lens of climate change and care for creation. It was a wonderful episode, but felt a little out of the realm of what we normally do at the food and faith podcast. Some of us had the idea to do a podcast that was devoted thinking about scripture through a green lens. 

 

So, this is a test! I have four friends with me and we’re going to be looking at the passages for Holy week over the next three episodes and asking the questions of where is creation, where is God, and where is there a call to action for us. 

 

My guests for the first episode are Rev. Dr. Garrett Andrew, pastor of Nipomo Community Presbyterian Church in Arroyo Grande, Ca., and Avery Lamb, co-executive director at Creation Justice ministries. 

 

The passages we’ll be looking at are Luke 19:28-40 and Psalm 118. 

Soulful Eating: A Conversation with Rev. Dr. Christopher Carter.

Soulful Eating: A Conversation with Rev. Dr. Christopher Carter.

April 6, 2022

As a part of the Just Kitchen series, Anna and Derrick speak with Rev. Dr. Chris Carter about black veganism, creating a food ethic, and his book "The Spirit of Soul Food: Race, Faith, and Food Justice". 

Rev. Dr. Christopher Carter’s teaching, research, and activist interests are in Black, Womanist, and Environmental ethics, with a particular focus on race, food, and nonhuman animals. He is
the co-creator of Racial Resilience, an anti-racism and anti-bias program that utilizes the combined insights of contemplative practices and critical race theories. His academic publications include The Spirit of Soul Food (University of Illinois Press, December 2021), and “Blood in the Soil: The Racial, Racist, and Religious Dimensions of Environmentalism” in The
Bloomsbury Handbook on Religion and Nature (Bloomsbury, 2018).

The passion that informs all of his work evolves out of his family's struggle to loosen the chains of systematic racism – similar to bell hooks he believes that education is the practice of freedom. He believes that at its broadest level, learning should be transformational: it should transform how the student views herself, her neighbor, and her worldview. Currently he is an
Assistant Professor of Theology at the University of San Diego, a Faith in Food Fellow at Farm Forward, and lead pastor of The Loft in Westwood California.
