‘Blessed Hunger, Holy Feast’
Throughout the Scriptures for this Lenten season, a theme of human emptiness recurs in contrast to the satisfaction and fulfillment God longs to provide for us. God’s people are portrayed enduring difficult times—hungry and thirsty, often lost and away from the safety of home. At the same time, God’s people find their most basic needs met in God’s abundance—they find their needs fulfilled by means of a feast that only God can provide! “Blessed hunger, holy feast” articulates the truth found in these passages of Scripture.
