Offsite Author Talk: Meghan Murphy-Gill at St. Luke's

The life of bread is as ordinary as it is sacred. It offers a path toward understanding the inner workings of the world, ourselves, and the relationship between the two. Episcopal priest and home baker Meghan Murphy-Gill explores the world of bread and its rich meanings--from the exuberant joy of the hotdog roll to the inactive time as bread slowly rises. Engaging a bread practice is both spiritual and process focused, and bread invites us to community and communion in ongoing, fulfilling, and profoundly life-giving ways.

Murphy-Gill will give a talk and book signing as part of St. Luke's Episcopal Church's Lammas Day, or first wheat, celebration. 

Meghan Murphy-Gill is an Episcopal priest and author. Her writing on food, spirituality, and culture has appeared in the New York Times, Chicago Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, Vice, New York Magazine, Modern Farmer, the Chicago Tribune, the Utne Reader, National Catholic Reporter, Sojourners, and U.S. Catholic magazine.
