Recent lecture on Eucharist and Agriculture

Hello!  As I noted in my previous blog post, I have been up to my eyeballs with farm work and preparing and delivering a number of lectures, such that I haven’t had much time to devote to this blog.  Again, I’m sorry for the hiatus, which I think is just about at an end.  In the meantime, I wanted to share with any interested readers a digital recording made of a recent presentation I gave at the 2011 annual conference of the Notre Dame Center for Liturgy (  It’s entitled “Fruit of the Earth, Work of Human Hands: The Eucharist, Agriculture, and Ecological Responsibility.”  You listen to it by going to the publisher’s webpage for my recent book, A Time to Plant, and clicking on the “Extras” tab.  Under Audio, you’ll find there a variety of mp3 audio pieces; the last one on the list is the lecture I gave at Notre Dame.  Here’s the link:

Again, thanks for your patience with the blog posts.  I’m ruminating on one now and should post it fairly soon.

  2. Hi Kyle,
    I am the director of John XXIII Retreat Center in Hartford City, IN. I am looking for a presenter for a Farmer’s Retreat and their wives. I thought perhaps January would be a good time. Would you be available or interested in doing that you? If you could call or e-mail me soon, I would appreciate that.
