     Satisfying hunger is a perpetual pursuit.  So, what do we do with internal hunger?  Not hunger for food, but the deep inner hunger in our souls for happiness, connection, satisfaction. If you look to the world to satisfy your deepest needs, the world will always come up short, but jesus is the bread of life.  

     When we pray, God wants more than just a transaction with us.  He has designed us to be satisfied with Him.  So how do we satisfy our hunger through a relationship with Jesus?  Join us in a deep dive into the Beatitudes found in the Gospel of Matthew for insight and answers to these questions.
