“I’ve been feeling sluggish and have little energy,” a friend shares. My mind races ahead, “get gluten out of your diet.” Another friend, battling cancer, tearfully explains her last doctor visit. Again, I think, “add turmeric to your daily supplements.” I don’t say either of these comments aloud for I’m not a nutritionist or a dietician but inevitably wherever I am, my conversations to turn food. Am I being called to a Food Ministry?
I was contemplating this question when KateBart posted a recent TED talk featuring Jamie Oliver on her facebook page. I’d seen the Naked Chef before but when I watched his passion and heard his message, my heart was pounding. Jamie’s TED talk is 20 minutes long, but if you haven’t seen it, please schedule some time to watch.
Jamie is clearly living a food ministry. If you are not inspired by his message, I believe you will at least admire his determination. I’m certain that part of this calling is what attracted me to CSA initially. What are you being called to do?
