Eating Heaven

Published: Friday, 28 March 2014

Eating HeavenLed by Dianne Taylor, a group of us have been meeting to discuss a recently published book “Eating Heaven”, by Rev. Simon Holt, Senior minister at Collins Street Baptist Church.

Simon Holt not only writes of the experience of eating and enjoying food, but of the significance of sharing food together.  Previously an experienced chef, in his book Simon Holt gives us glimpses of elegant cuisine in high social circles.  He also describes a fascinating variety of eating experiences at many levels of Australian society.  He suggests that it can be a way of meeting people on ground where they feel comfortable, and a natural way of sharing the Faith, when an opportunity arises.

Our Insights Group agreed that this was happening in their experience, too, and stories were shared about some of those special moments.  On this first meeting of the Insights Group- a wonderful collection of home-grown herbs was on a display table- ready to be shared at the end of the session.

The group keenly looks forward to a future meeting when “Eating Heaven’s” author  Simon Holt, has promised to join us.
