The Sacred Life of Bread, with Meghan Murphy-Gill
Welcome back to Pizza Quest. In this episode, we meet Meghan Murphy-Gill, aka The Reverend Meghan Murphy-Gill, an Episcopal priest who also happens to be a serious baker of bread and, most importantly, a fabulous writer who has authored a new book, The Sacred Life of Bread. The subtitle of her book is “Uncovering the Mystery of an Ordinary Loaf.” As we continue our back and forth exploration between “pizza” and “the quest,” you can see why this book and its author, are of great interest to me. Join us as Rev. Meghan and I discuss the many layers of meaning in a simple loaf of bread. I dare say, you may never again look at your sandwich — or your pizza crust — the same, after listening to this episode.
