Stay Hungry

It was great to see so many come out for Ash Wednesday Service and many thanks to the chefs for cooking up a remarkable meal at our Wednesday Family Meal. This week we waltzed back toward winter on Thursday, but we must admit we've been, luckily, out on the dance floor with spring these last two weeks.

This Sunday we will celebrate communion at all three worship services. I will preach on Isaiah 55 as well as Matthew 4. I will address the issue of hunger; the kind of hunger that no amount of food ever satisfies. I want to address what the band U2 spoke about with their lyrics,

I have climbed the highest mountains,
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you.

I have run, I have crawled,
I have scaled these city walls,
Only to be with you.

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for.
