Enough for All

Sunday, July 29, 2018

Hunger is a dreadful thing which in some way seems to be a part of our lives, even in this amazing wealthy nation.  We can hunger for food or particular foods.  But we can also hunger for compassion, love, companionship, touch, presence, physical and spiritual union.  We spend much of our lives focused on the absence of that for which we hunger, often confused about what “that” even is.  For what do you hunger?

So, listen again to your invitation!
