Too much good food…too little self control

I love good food, making it and sharing it. I love pleasing my family with food that nurtures them. But food has become another idol in our society – one in which we find ourself adoring 3 times a day and often in between times as well.

How do we manage the food as idol and food as fuel slippery slope? Not everyone know how to eat well. Not everyone knows how to eat enough. Not everyone knows how to not to eat too much.

Recently I listened to a  talk by Crystal Munson (Mars Hill Church Women’s Training day). This talk deals with a sin that is “commonly overlooked within the church and inappropriately understood by the world.”

Gluttony I commend this talk to you. It is one of five talks from the Christian Womanhood in a Feminist Culture series.
