Bless This Food: Amazing Graces in Thanks for Food
Saturday, May 30, 2015
Bless This Food is a collection of graces from many traditions - Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, etc. I came across this title in my quest to find dinner prayers that were more resonant with my family than the standard one I had been taught as a child or the simpler ones that I had prayed with my own children when they were younger. Adrian Butash begins by beautifully describing the intimate relationship that humans have with food and the God or gods who are the source of that food and explains why saying grace and giving thanks is a universal phenomenon. Bless This Food is recommended for all who appreciate the spiritual aspect of nourishment and are looking for new or alternative prayers to say at mealtime.
