TASTE: The sense of the week!
“Have you ever thought about tasting God in what you put in your mouth? The idea that food can remind us of the different attributes, ways and stories of God is a novel thought for most of us. If we are open to letting God teach us the ways of faith through our bodies, though, then we can learn the ways of faith through our taste buds as well as our brain. The sweetness of a freshly baked cinnamon roll can remind us of the sweetness of God’s love in the same way that horseradish at Passover reminds Jews of the bitterness of slavery.” Awaken Your Senses, pg. 26 (adapted)
Today (Feb. 6) we begin the “Awaken Your Senses Contest.” (But you can join anytime!) The contest will be featured on:
1. This week, you are invited to pay attention to your sense of TASTE and see how it introduces you to the wonder of God.
2. If something cool happens, post a description about that experience on the Awaken Your Senses FB Page or Beth or Brent’s blogs. (All entries must be submitted by Sunday at noon.)
3. Brent and Beth will choose a winner on Sunday evening and that person will receive a $25 gift card that will be sure to please his or her palate! Brent and Beth will also do a drawing from the names of everyone who participates and give away an autographed copy of Awaken Your Senses.
4. The winners will be announced on the FB page and their blogs on Monday when a new sense begins!
Tell your friends about the contest. Tweet, tumblr and blog about it! Spread the word! We can’t wait to hear about your experiences as you awaken your senses to the wonder of God!
