Hungry, Part 2

This past Sunday we broke into small groups to talk about our hunger for God. Looking backwards  to Holme’s 4 Spiritual Types, we talked about the unique expressions this hunger is taking, and what might fill this hunger.  Meanwhile, the children of our church happily munched on peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Rumour has it Jerrod ate 5!

I am wondering how this theme has lingered in your minds this week and what ideas for feeding yourself you have been contemplating…I wonder which of these ideas you can do with others, which ones you need to pursue on your own, and which ones we might weave into our corporate practices as a church. I would love to hear your musings.
