Jed Dearing – Franklinton – Day Three

Great lunch today with Rev. Lee Anne Reat at the Weiner Jewish Center engaging with Dr. Yvonne Zimmerman and ministers from across many denominations and faith backgrounds at the Ministerium of Ideas. She posited the question of “how we live in a way that isn’t arranged around the economy?” We worked through the question of “how in a market based form of life like contemporary culture in the US we can find discourse and practice that counter our seemingly inexorable formation as consumers.” Many folks at this gathering assumed that I brought my own dishes to protest the extreme amount of waste we generate as a culture. As much as I wish I had that as an intended purpose, I shared about #PartakeColumbus, and had a number of great conversations about the value of shared meals, and the role of art in everyday life. 

While the menu for today was pasta and salad yet again, this dish included white meat chicken, squash, zucchini, and mushrooms, which was a pleasant surprise.
