Theologizing, as an action of Christian faith, is a community enterprise. But communities in our globalized world are hardly homogeneous but would be intercultural. This paper wishes to explore how a Filipino pastoral team –Bukal ng Tipan – does theology and facilitates theologizing among its diocesan partners. Although Bukal ng Tipan works in the Philippines, Asia and Europe,this paper will focus on its work with German dioceses because of marked difference in context/cultures and theological backgrounds (!). Perhaps ‘food’ as an enduring Christian faith symbol could also link intercultural theologizing and produce an‘Edible Theology’.
