WHAT ARE YOU HUNGRY FOR? What do you desire – and what desire lies beneath that desire – or within it? What does your wanting teach you about yourself; about what you love, what you fear, what is possible? How does your longing meet the world’s longing? How do you pray with your desires?
Where the world of the hunger below you meets the hunger of the world within you: may you find yourself in this place.
