‘Big Words: Eat’ on Thursday, with dinner provided

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life will continue our Big Words series beginning Thursday, Jan. 17, with Big Words: EAT. Chef Hari Pulapaka joins us to create this event, which we are doing in conjunction with Baptist Collegiate Fellowship (BCF). The event will be in Allen Hall, where BCF holds its regular Thursday dinners, at 6:30 p.m. 

Big Words presents an interfaith perspective on a concept or value important to different religious and spiritual traditions. Food is, of course, essential to life; it also serves as a powerful symbol for the way our religious and contemplative practices nurture our spiritual lives.  

Hari Pulapaka, Ph.D., will guide the cooking for Big Words: EAT, as well as lead a discussion of spirituality and food. Besides being a professor of mathematics at Stetson, Dr. Pulapaka is also Chef Pulapaka—he is the acclaimed, award-winning chef and owner of Cress Restaurant in downtown DeLand. 

Cultural Credit approval is pending. Check for updates.
