The hope is that this will be the first of many conversations that inspire further theological thinking around caring for creation, as well as an opportunity to network and empower localized growing communities of faith. The conference will be held over zoom so even though it's in the UK you can take part. Some of our keynote speakers will be familiar to fans of this podcast, Nurya Love Parish, Ellen Davis, and Norman Wirzba just to name a few.

Interview with The Rev. Duncan Hilton

Food and Faith Podcast

Co-hosts Anna Woofenden, Derrick Weston, and Sam Chamelin

www.foodandfaithpodcast.org

Guest Links:https://collegevilleinstitute.org/?s=duncan+hilton

Guest Bio: In August 2020 Duncan began serving as Priest-in-Charge at St. John’s Walpole, NH. Before that he served as Priest for Discipleship and Discernment at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Brattleboro, VT. At St. Michael’s he was commissioned to raise up leaders inside and outside the church to listen and follow their call through prayer and action. Out of a small group ministry he developed there sprung initiatives around praying the Daily Office, discernment and decision-making retreats, partnering with the Community Justice Center to support people transitioning out of prison, and beginning to create a L’Arche Community in Southern Vermont (an international network of communities that help care for people with intellectual disabilities).

Before arriving in Vermont and being ordained, Duncan worked for five years as Executive Director with the Leadership Development Initiative (LDI), where he trained Episcopal parishes in team-based leadership practices in order to help them launch local mission projects. He also worked as Training Director for Life Together, the Boston-based Episcopal Service Corps program, and as a  Teaching Fellow with Professor Marshall Ganz at the Harvard Kennedy School in his class, “Organizing: People, Power, Change.” Duncan’s career shifted from congregational ministry in the United Church of Christ, where he served as a minister for youth and children, to leadership and organizing through his experience in 2010 as Field Coordinator for the Promise Arizona campaign, which registered over 15,000 new voters in the state.

Duncan lives with his wife Bethany on his grandmother’s farm in southern Vermont. He enjoys leading singalongs on guitar, gardening, and playing and watching sports.

Rev. Karen Mann

Karen is a pastor in the United Church of Christ and worked for a number of years as a hospital chaplain before following her passion for food on to the farm. The first stop was as the Market Manager for a network of farms for refugees. Given that she didn’t meet any of the qualifications, she’s pretty sure she got the job by describing how much she loves turnips. She has now settled on her own farm in central Virginia, Heart & Bones Hollow, with her partner and two kids. Together they raise goats, pigs and a variety of produce for market.  She is also the pastor of a new Dinner Church in her rural community and hoping to find ways to bring the farm and the faith community together.

Land, Food, and Faith Formation: A Conversation with Jade Clark and Nathan Dorris from Memphis Theological Seminary

Land, Food, and Faith Formation: A Conversation with Jade Clark and Nathan Dorris from Memphis Theological Seminary

Memphis Theological Seminary is currently accepting applications for the Doctor of Ministry in Land, Food, and Faith Formation. This dynamic and innovative low-residency program is open to students who are passionate about the intersections of ministry with agricultural practices, food justice, care for the land, and the role of faith communities in both rural and urban settings. 

Students in this program will explore the theological and ethical dimensions of land and its use, the role of food in our lives, and the ways faith communities both shape and are shaped by their relationship with land and food. This program will provide theological resources and practical models for the practice of ministry in faith communities which seek to relate more intentionally to the care of land, food, and all living creatures. 

Instructors in this program--like Rev. Dr. Heber Brown, III and Nurya Love Parish--have been at the forefront of food justice and creation care.

The first two-week residency for the new cohort takes place in June 2020, and applications are currently being accepted until April 30.

Goat Cheese and a Baguette: A Conversation with Bethany Rydmark

Goat Cheese and a Baguette: A Conversation with Bethany Rydmark Food and Faith Podcast with Anna Woofenden and Sam Chamelin 

Bethany Rydmark is an eighth generation Oregonian, a landscape architect, a food-loving community organizer, and a forever-traveler at heart. As a home-educated daughter of a farmer and a teacher in the rural Pacific Northwest, she’s been transformed through engaging cultures beyond her bounds around the world and across her city. 

She has been featured in print, video, and web by Rolling Stone, The Oregonian, Cooking Up a Story, The Huffington Post, and The Associated Press as founding co-host of Portland’s PDX Food Swap. The grass roots community organization promotes food sharing across cultures by connecting people across cities, socioeconomic lines, and streets through the moneyless exchange of homemade food. Her work in grassroots food activism continues to attract attention in the lead up to the 10th Anniversary of the PDX Food Swap in 2020, and the 5th Anniversary of the Bake America Great Again Bake Sale for Refugees in 2019. 

A blogger for fifteen years, Bethany founded twoOregonians.com, earning finalist for TBU’s Best Newcomer travel blog in 2012, and her written work appears in such places as the collective Mama Said: Wit and Wisdom for New Mothers (Wild Child Travels, 2016), Meet, Plan, Go! How to Make Career-Related Connections on the Road, Sustainable Food for Thought, and The Art Cities of Emilia Romagna (citta d’arte Emilia Romagna, 2014), and her independently produced feature on the Middle East’s first microbrewery was highlighted by The Atlantic Longreads’ then-active Travelreads.

She has spoken at Wise Words and Wine with Women of Hope, and continues to engage with her international and local community through online and in person connections at global and neighborhood scales, raising funds for the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization and celebrating liberty and justice for all. 

Bethany is a 2006 graduate of the University of Oregon’s school of Architecture and Allied Arts, American Society of Landscape Architects member, and licensed, practicing landscape architect and small business owner living and working in Portland, Oregon.

Bethany is married to her childhood friend, Ted, and is raising two daughters in footsteps of strength and independence to follow their curiosities and compassion into the world.

Livin' Lard - Good Food and Good Community with Rev. Karen Mann

Rev. Karen Mann is a pastor in the United Church of Christ and worked for a number of years as a hospital chaplain before following her passion for food to the farm. The first stop was as the Market Manager for a network of farms for refugees. Given that she didn't meet any of the job qualifications, she's pretty sure she got the job by describing how much she loves turnips. She has now settled on her own farm in central Virginia, Heart & Bones Hollow, with her partner and two kids. Together they raise goats, chickens, pigs, one dairy cow, and a variety of produce for market.  She is also working to start a new Dinner Church in her rural community and hoping to find ways to bring the farm and the faith community together.    You can follow the farm on Facebook at www.facebook.com/heartandboneshollow or visit their website heartandboneshollow.com. Or you can read some of Karen's reflections on faith and farming at carrotseedfaith.com.

Creating vs. Consuming:  A Conversation with Courtney Ellis

Creating vs. Consuming:  A Conversation with Courtney Ellis

Food and Faith Podcast With Anna Woofenden and Sam Chamelin www.foodandfaithpodcast.org

Courtney Ellis is a pastor, speaker, and author of Uncluttered: Free Your Space, Free Your Schedule, Free Your Soul, and Almost Holy Mama: Life-Giving Spiritual Practices for Weary Parents. A graduate of Wheaton College and Princeton Theological Seminary, she lives in southern California with her husband, Daryl, and their three children.

Her bylines include Christianity Today, MOPS International, Fathom Mag, The Mighty, and (in)courage. She is a regular contributor to The Glorious Table and has been featured on Two Peas in a Podcast and The Ride Home with John and Kathy.

A regular speaker for MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), leadership retreats, college and teen events, Courtney is an engaging, hilarious, winsome, and thoughtful presence on the stage.

Courtney grew up in northern Wisconsin where she and her two younger sisters figure skated in sequined leotards until they discovered ice hockey. She reads too much, can’t make herself enjoy yoga, and hits the trails near her home when life gets too life-y.

The proud owner of a $.29 goldfish she’s kept alive for over a year (this is a big accomplishment for someone who once killed a cactus by under-watering), she’s never met a sour gummy treat she doesn’t like.
