Religion and Food | Holy Food - Religion and Food. Religion and food practices observed by people are deeply related to each other. Different foods consumed help you to understand a religion, its practices and ideologies. Food thus plays a very important part in the religious functions and rituals of a religion. In Christianity the regulations governing food and drink differ among the various faiths in the religion, including Roman Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant.

The most powerful symbol of food associated with religion in Christianity is the bread and wine of communion. The bread and wine had during communion represent the actual body and blood of Christ. Communion is thus very sacred for Christians and is regularly celebrated by many. Fasting or abstaining from food is an ancient practice followed in most religions.

With 6 teenage children, we often have guests for dinner. I am also an episcopal priest involved with the dance and movement performance community in Chicago. As an Anglican, I was trained in the theology of incarnation, but as a cook, parent, everyday pastor, and supporter of dance, I am far more interested in the practical implications of incarnation.In everyday language, incarnation means that God, a power much greater than ourselves, gave up that power to be among us, to live as one of us.

For Christians, this is clearly stated in John 1:14. One morning, I dropped two of our children off at school downtown. A few were there to argue, or continue an argument, and a few more were on the phone throughout their meal. One way in which I am now taking incarnation and embodiment seriously is in how I prepare meals for my family. Spiritual Food - Holy-Food. Spiritual food is a must for every Christian.

Most of us know the story of Jesus Christ. Immediately, after Jesus got baptized, he went on a mountain and fasted for 40 days and 40 nights.

Then, the Satan told Jesus, “If you are the Son of God, you can change stones into loaves of bread”. For this, Jesus answered, “No!
