Kendall Vanderslice is a writer and baker who studies the intersection of food and theology. Formed through her experiences in a range of denominations, Kendall longs to foster dialogue seeking unity of the Church. She is convinced that Christ offered a meal specifically for its power to unite and to heal.In her first book, We Will Feast: Rethinking Dinner, Worship, and the Community of God, Kendall offers a way forward for those hungry for intimate community, those aching over congregational decline, and those wounded by divisions in the Church.
