Abstract To link spirituality and food is not immediately obvious. We more readily link spirituality and fasting as a spiritual practice that has a long history in the Christian tradition. But eating is not simply intrinsic to life, it is also an important dimension of the life of faith, community, and that of witness and service. This is so because spirituality is not a part of life, but has to do with the whole of one's life. Thus we may define Christian spirituality as "a lived encounter with Jesus Christ in the Spirit.''1 And this on-going encounter is to shape the entire gestalt of one's life. To explore this further, we will listen to some of the biblical narratives, listen to the wisdom of church's long journey in history, deal with the problem of dualistic thinking and embrace a sacramental vision of life and faith.
