Why should you care what I'm eating for lunch?

I'm eating soy beans for lunch (salted roast soy nuts) and it reminded me of a man I met yesterday who lived ten years in Tennessee's famous "The Farm," an intentional community that supports global development with soy projects and many other services as outgrowths of their community life.

Why should you care what I'm eating for lunch? Because soy and by-products from soy are some of the most useful nutritional foods to help feed people in poor nations. Second, I want to make you aware of this community that is not overtly Christian--or perhaps is not even Christian--but they are an "outwardly-directed community." They care about the environment and people and do something about it. What if our churches started some farms?

Greg, is that the same The Farm in the book Spiritual Midwifery? I would love to visit there if it is. Is it close to Nashville? Sorry, lots of questions...just a place that inspired me for many years...need to pull out my old copy and read it again.

Hi, I was just blog surfing and found you! If you are interested, go see my fashion rock related site. It pretty much covers fashion rock stuff. I guess you may find something of interest.
