Soul Food: Mindful Eating as a Spiritual Discipline

      Soon after I arrived at Fairlington United Methodist Church, the Przystawiks hosted a dinner at their home so Pastor Mary Beth and I could get to know some of you and others from the church. As soon as I walked into their backyard, I was in awe. Plants budding with produce, chickens laying fresh eggs, and bees buzzing in and out of their hive making honey. The food they prepared was delectable. True yard to table,…See More

From Pastor Mary Beth: "There Is Enough"

We think we understand hunger. Little children with bloated stomachs in far away countries appear on our TV screens. Fund raising letters from aid organizations invite us to adopt hungry children who we will never meet. But hunger has many faces and it’s closer than we imagine. Recent reports indicate that 36% of students at 66 colleges and universities do not get enough to eat (Caitlin Dewey, The Washington Post).

Bread for the Journey

 We need food to live. Our bodies are nourished by proteins, fats, carbohydrates, water, vitamins and minerals. Without each of these elements, we get sick. Without food after a period of a few weeks, we die.There’s that. And then there’s the joy of eating. Not all, but many of us have the privilege of eating a variety of delicious foods. It’s something we look forward to each day. What did you eat today that you…See More

 This artwork from c.e.1310 can be found on the ceiling fresco of Kariye Camii in what was the Church of the Holy Savior of Chora in Istanbul Turkey, now a museum. It is a picture of the resurrection, or in Greek, anastasis (up-rising). You can see the risen Christ in the center in white, as he rises reaching out…See More

From Pastor Devon ~ Giving Up Popularity

    Our childhood and teenage years may have been spent chasing a desire to be popular, something we thought we would outgrow as adults. Although we may not say we want to be “popular,” it still is tempting to want to be liked or accepted by groups of people.      On Palm Sunday, it may seem like Jesus was popular, being welcomed into Jerusalem by the crowds who…See More
