Sermon

In the Scripture, Paul answers a question the community of Corinth has about eating the mean that has been sacrificed to idols. Young Adult Minister Kit Novotny uses this as a jumping off point to explore our own relationship to food, especially considering that food is such a big deal in the area. She explores sustenance, communion, beauty and delight as well as the “idols” we have constructed from it. She also explores the relationship of knowledge and love, in the same way that Paul expands the simple question of what food can be eaten and makes his answer a much bigger statement.
