Special Recognition of the Place of Food in our Lives:
Food
as
Sacrament/Holy Element

Welcome! We're glad you're planning on observing a liturgical season of creation. We have prepared some materials for you to use in worship, teaching, and personal reflection for this Sunday.

The alternate Creation Season readings below may be used in place of or in addition to the readings scheduled for this Sunday.

What is the Christian Response to the Global Food Crisis?

To neglect the deprived and powerless is to reject Christ, who encounters us in the hundreds of millions of the hungry, thirsty, naked, sick, imprisoned and alienated people of today's world, all of whom make a rightful claim for just and compassionate responses. Their needs can be fully met only by justice achieved through political and economic institutions. The church must be a participant in this struggle for justice.

- Hope for a Global Future: Toward Just and Sustainable Human Development, approved by the 208th General Assembly (1996) Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)


Leviticus 19:9-10

When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap to the very edges of your field, or gather the gleanings of your harvest. You shall not strip your vineyard bare, or gather the fallen grapes of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the alien: I am the Lord your God.

Additional Readings from Scripture are found here.
