I’m a little sad that I didn’t find these resources until the 2 days before the 3rd Sunday of Advent! The TEC Office of Public Affairs kicked off a whole Season of Advent resources back on Sunday, 20 NOV, Christ the King. Called Make Ready the Feast, the resources offer a scripture citation and a recipe for every day of Advent. “The recipes represent diverse cultures and traditions, demonstrating the strong relationships that cross borders and oceans in The Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion.” The first recipe was for a Traditional Christmas Pudding.
Advent calls us to a time of preparation and hope as we await the birth of the Christ Child. One tangible expression of this call is planning, cooking, and sharing a meal or special dish that brings sustenance and comfort to others and to ourselves. The importance of providing food for both body and soul is found throughout the Bible. Coming to the table – in whatever condition or station of life – is essential to our faith.
– Mary Brennan, Episcopal Church Mission Communication Officer
The above video features Maggy Kent, daughter of an Episcopal priest, speaking about Two Tables, demonstrating “the interplay between food and faith at two tables – the altar and the kitchen table.”
The resource is a website with each day’s offering of scripture and recipe.
