John Torrence, Sunday School Service at 11 a.m. and third Sundays of each Continued In many cities nationwide, there exists havens for the hungry shelters where individuals volunteer their services preparing nourishing meals for those, who for various reasons, are unable to nourish themselves. The hungry are a potpourri of the less than elite, many of whom are representative of those who were recently more than self-sufficient. Yet, it has been said that life is not always fair but God is. Ultimately, are we not all kindred souls, in search of the meaning and manna to strengthen us as we travel unpredictable paths? Then how wonderful there is another haven a shelter for hungry spirits where all are welcomed and encouraged. God has promised us in Matthew 5:6, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall satisfied." Visit our Father's sanctuary this Sabbath and experience the sustenance only He can provide. Scriptures Selected by The American Bible Society Copyright 1998, Keister-Williams Newspaper Services, P.
