Mise en place is a French culinary term for putting things in place. It is the idea of getting everything in order before you begin to cook. Mise en place can begin weeks before a meal is served. Mise en place is also a philosophy that can be applied to getting life in order. This sermon will explore that deeper mise en place for each of us – how we make sure everything is in order and in place inside us so that we are ready and able to deal with all that life brings to our kitchen.
