Spirituality of food.
After listening to a coworker detail her Sunday, including going to church, I read this article and quoted a few statistics to her. She was upset and said that if food weren't subsidized then people wouldn't be able to afford it; we should leave "well enough alone." This same woman has a 10-year-old son who developed cancer last year and is now completely blind (irreversibly), and is not yet out of the woods. She doesn't even want to know how much the environmental destruction has played a part in her son's tragic illness.
I hope that every preacher who reads this series will see the link between food and spirituality and the destruction of Earth and will preach this morality from the pulpit.
