Tagines and Turnovers

For some time now, I have been wanting to do a post about cooking.  Instead, I decided to start a separate blog so that when I want to do this, I can (without changing the nature of this blog)!

I am going to shamelessly advertise that new blog, called From Tagines to Turnovers.  Hopefully you will enjoy this other side of me!

To tie this 'advertisement' into the current blog you are reading, I'll give you a quotation from a book I'm reading called Living the Resurrection by Eugene Peterson:
"The unimaginable transcendence of resurrection is assimilated into the routine and ordinary of actions -- eating a meal.  We have a long tradition among Christians, given shape and content by our Scriptures, that practices the preparing, serving, and eating of meals as formational for living the resurrection.  A culture of inhospitality forebodes resurrection famine." (p59)
Certainly something to think about in our culture of busyness, isolation, and fast food.

  1. Oh, I'm excited for this! Food, cooking and enjoying meals together is something that I've been increasingly interested in lately - from a practical and experimental viewpoint, and from a theological one. So I'm looking forward to your new blog.
