March 10, 1-4pm

In conjunction with Shrimp Boat Projects, the Spirituality of Stewardship, Sustainability and Food features special guest Norman Wirzba, Research Professor of Theology, Ecology and Rural Life at Duke University’s Divinity School. The afternoon will include a presentation by Dr. Wirzba, followed by a panel discussion with local experts on ethical land and water use. Join us afterward for a celebratory reception with foods from local Houston gardens and eateries. This event is co-presented with the Rothko Chapel.

Dr. Norman Wirzba’s current research focuses on eating as a spiritual discipline, theological reflection as informed by place, and agrarianism as a viable and comprehensive cultural force. He will share his insights on the value and consequence of a spiritual connection to our natural resources in a lecture titled, Eating as a Spiritual Act.
