Check out the Integrity and the Entrepreneur symposium over at Comment Magazine, which features stories from people throughout the U.S. and Canada. I contributed an account of how we dealt with a theft situation from our fair trade store World Fare in 2009.
This weekend, we’ll be co-hosting the biennial Practicing Resurrection conference with Russet House Farm in Cameron, Ontario. Our theme this year is “Urban Agriculture and the Peace of the City” and the event will feature keynote speakers Ched Myers and Elaine Enns, as well as a great slate of exciting workshop presenters.
It should be a refreshing and inspiring event!
Out of a conversation about collaboration last fall with folks from the Christian Reformed Office of Social Justice, a tour was born–the Eat Well Food Tour, to be exact.
Basically, throughout the summer of 2009, Rob and I will visit churches, farms, farmer’s markets and other locations throughout the midwestern U.S. and Canada exploring food and faith issues. We’ll conduct interviews, assist in networking around food justice and conduct workshops on food and storytelling. The workshop will explore how our food choices can represent faithful improvisation on the themes of the Christian story, including justice, abundance, love, hospitality, creativity, stewardship and more.
Check out the tour web site for more details, including a tour blog where we’ll chronicle the people, places and ideas we’ll encounter along the way. And watch for a stop near you!
