Rice is heaven
As you cannot possess heaven by yourself
Rice is to be shared

Rice is heaven
As you see the stars in heaven together
Rice is to be shared by everybody

When rice goes into a mouth
Heaven is worshipped in the mind

Rice is heaven
Ah, ah, rice is
To be shared by everybody.
— Korean Poet Kim Chi Ha
“ Rice is the Sky,” by Lee Chul Soo

Rice is the Sky,” by Lee Chul Soo

Heaven is found in sharing - shared meals, shared stories, and shared lives. Heaven is found in sharing a rice bowl in a scarcely known village in southeast Africa and sharing a plate of biscuits at a Cracker Barrel in Nashville. It’s found in sharing in abundance and sharing abundantly.

The Rice Bowl is for sharing the stories of life, community, creation, and the divine extending hospitality to one another and inviting everyone to come and partake in heaping bowls of rice.
