Bread and Wine

Air Date April 15, 2013


Surprising and sacred things happen around the dinner table when we gather the people we love together. On this Midday Connection, Shauna Niequist joins us to explore what really happens when we feed one another, even if it’s just dark chocolate sea salted toffee with a cup of tea. Shauna believes the most sacred moments take place at the table.
