The biblical narrative is ripe with images of seeds and harvests, food and tables. In fact, the whole story starts in a garden, and ends in a gardened city. Even when things aren’t going right, when God’s people find themselves in exile, God still invites an exiled people to build houses, plant gardens, and to love everyone they meet.
Over the course of four weeks we’ll take a look at biblical themes of creation, sabbath, shalom, and Eucharist, and discuss the centrality of food, our relationship to it, and to one another through the lens of scripture.
This pop-up study begins on Sunday October 22nd, and continues through the end of November at Christ Church Cathedral (690 Burrard St., Vancouver BC).
Note: There will be no session on Sunday October 29th, 2017 due to the St. Brigids community’s retreat at Rivendell.
Facilitated by Jason Wood and the Rev. Marnie Peterson, we will gather together in a casual, relaxed space for prayer, reflection and discussion of scripture over coffee, tea and snacks.

ABOUT POP-UP STUDIES AT ST. BRIGIDS
Pop-Up Studies like this Feasting on the Word study offer a casual, relaxed space for prayer, reflection and discussion – no matter what your starting point. Throughout the year we offer multiple opportunities to engage in discussion about about a topic related to Christian faith.
These groups provide time and a safe space to build community outside of Sunday evening Eucharist, and are opportunities to ask questions, nurture your faith, or find ways to live that faith everyday.
