Harvest is about food. And generally the way food is viewed in our culture is increasingly as a commodity. That is not how it is seen through the eyes of faith. We see food as God’s sustaining and life-giving gift; something to add savour to life, something to enjoy, something to create and extend fellowship, something that, by its use in a service like this, helps us to appreciate the divine, the sacred in life. In other words, it is something that helps us to see the burning bush, and invites us to take off our shoes.
