Anne created this conceptual illustration to accompany a recent article in UUWorld Magazine.  "Dinner with Monsanto" by Michelle Bates Deakin, covers the potluck dinner that occurred  between  Rev. Nathan Walker and some of the members of The Philadelphia Unitarian and two spokespeople from Monsanto. The dinner occurred after a sermon the Rev. Nathan Walker gave got the attention of scientists, media and Monsanto. The Rev. Nathan Walker wrote a sermon, "Sovereign Seeds", as an open letter to Hugh Grant, the CEO of Monsanto. In the sermon, Walker challenged Grant to respond to seven “moral questions” about Monsanto’s relationships with farmers, consumers, scientists, the government and others.
