Feast = Abundance
Feasting = Enjoying the abundance

Those are my definitions. No credit will be taken by Noah Webster. :-)

I'm not speaking of "glutony". I'm speaking of "feasting" on good food and good friendship. 

There is a group of people in Italy that began a movement they call "the convivium" 
which means "the feast". 
They are a group of people trying to promote the idea of a "slow-food" movement instead contribute to another generation of "fast-food" families. 

Do you need to SLOW DOWN and enjoy the family 
dinner table more? 
I know that we do. 
Let's take the "slow-food" movement challenge together. 

"Taste and see that the Lord is good; 
blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him." 
Psalm 34:8

There is a fabulous post by Ann Voskamp at
on eating spiritual food after each meal. 
Check it out!


  1. I love this! We have a sermon series on sin coming up, and I think this is the perfect antithesis of gluttony.

  2. :-) Thanks for stopping by.
    I was a chubby kid and don't really enjoy cooking thus I have a love/hate relationship with food. But I am really trying to wrap my head around the fact that food can have so much more meaning in a family than just nurishing our flesh!
