I do not travel often so when I do it is only for important events. One such important event is coming up April 8th in St. Louis. I am honored to be participating in a public roundtable discussion at Washington University’s John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics. The title of the event is: ‘ Food, Religion, and Politics: A Conversation on Contemporary Issues in the U.S.‘. Besides myself the other speakers include:

From the John C. Danforth Center website:

“This moderated roundtable will bring together activists, entrepreneurs, and scholars with backgrounds and expertise in various faith traditions to discuss faith-based reactions to contemporary issues such as sustainability and labor concerns in the food industry.”

I look forward to sharing about the Sustainable Traditions project, and our local food initiative Land and Table – adding my perspective as a Jesus follower to the conversation on transforming the way our nation eats and cultivates food.

If you are near St. Louis (or will be in April) I hope you can make it to this important roundtable. This event is free and open to the public. See the flyer below from the John C. Danforth Center:

(Update: Here is a video of the roundtable discussion. Around the 27 minute mark you can find my talk and
after all the individual presentations there is continued moderated discussion that features all the speakers. – JF)
