CHRISTIAN & VEGAN

Alicia Griggs discusses how veganism complements her Christian beliefs, and the work that she is doing to promote cruelty-free living in her community

Christianity and veganism share a couple of similarities; they encounter closed-minded judgement by others, and believe that love, kindness and compassion are fundamental to their belief system. However, the difference is that many Christians have yet to understand the connection between these caring emotions and what they eat.

Furthermore, the stereotypical notion that it is our God-given right to use animals for food is at the forefront of a lot of the judgement and scorn directed towards the Christian community. These feelings of anger and frustration at the traditional approach some Christians have towards life is something I’ve felt conflicted with myself. Questions of whether my ethical beliefs and my religious beliefs should be linked, or if they are mutually exclusive, have arisen a lot during my journey as a vegan Christian, but I’d also like to explain why my relationship with God supports my vegan lifestyle.

About Vegan Life

It’s the most wonderful time of the year which means dark nights and crisp cold days, rich cinnamon-infused foods and, in my house, Miracle on 34th Street on repeat. I turn into that annoying person that most people hate at Christmas. I start listening to carols in early November, wearing ridiculous jumpers and get myself into a state of overexcitement for the entirety of December leading to near exhaustion by Christmas Eve. Combining my passions for Christmas and veganism for the December issue of Vegan Life, therefore, has been immensely satisfying for me and it should be just as satisfying for you because we have a bumper issue! This month we have made Vegan Life even bigger (and better) with 122 pages full of your favourite regulars as well as interviews, news and the best vegan recipes around. These extra pages give you the perfect excuse to curl up in a chair just a little longer and have some you-time to read and escape the ever-so-slightly-manic Christmas hysteria. In a whistle stop tour of the magazine we have; an interview with Ingrid Kirkman, founder of PETA; Fat Gay Vegan on shopping at independents; an article on the importance of iodine in our diets and an excellent travel section focusing on the vegan scene in Brazil. Finally, I want to share some very exciting news from Vegan Life HQ. As some of you may know we were nominated for the Best Vegan Magazine by the VegFest UK Awards and… we won! I want to say thank you to everyone who voted for Vegan Life and to those who read the magazine. We count ourselves incredibly lucky to have such a loyal readership who are so supportive of what we do. Vegan Life was founded, and is still run, by a team of vegans passionate about making a change in the world. We are seeing the start of that change and we will be with you every step of the way into the future. For now, enjoy the festive period and we will see you in the new year.
