Food and Faith: A Spiritual Bond

Aired 2000-01. Food is often the center of many religious celebrations; fasting gives way to feast; disciplined self control gives way to a joyous celebration of the gifts of God. Feasts bond both communities and families and in this program we met people who have found the connection between our appetite for food and our spiritual appetite. They lead us to experience the joys of the harvest, and our festivals as one of the great human connections to the Divine.
