If you are on the schedule to cook for one of our Love Feasts, or just want to try something new at home, look no further.
A bit about the Love Feast: Our communal meals on Sundays consist of basic vegan soups/stews/chili and bread. It’s simple for a number of reasons and I’ll defer to a great brief history of the Love Feast that I found on the interwebs.
The Agape Feast was the Love Feast in apostolic times and was often celebrated daily. This simple meal was observed in connection with the Eucharist, the two being spoken as the Lord’s Supper. It was a simple meal and a public banquet like thanksgiving every day except the poor were invited and not just family. By ignoring all distinctions of economic and social status they all met as members of one family. This act of unity and brotherly love was common to all Christians who chose to come, whether rich or poor. The rich brought food for the poor who brought nothing. It symbolized the community of goods when it was just fading away. Portions were also sent to the sick and absent members and intended as an example of mutual Christian love for each other.
