Notices: Learning Journeys
Long ago, David and I made a decision that whatever money accrued to
us in a life of ministry, we would not put it toward the purchase of
things, but toward meaningful experiences. We would like to offer you
the opportunity to join us on two learning journeys. This Soulish Food
will fill you in on the Voluntourism trip to Kenya, Africa and next
week we will send out detailed information about the Stratford Theatre
CLICK HERE to read the full "Voluntourism Journey to Kenya" information/invitation letter (includes photos).
We hope you will be able to join us on one or both experiences into learning through journeying.
The Soulish Food e-mails are
posted biweekly on the Hungry Souls Web
site. Newcomers can look that over and decide if they want to
register on the Web site to receive the biweekly newsletter. You might
want to recommend this to friends also. They can go to www.HungrySouls.org.

If you can find a copy of this book, you might agree with the back-cover copy: “More than just an adventure, A Woman’s Path
presents inspiring stories of spiritual growth and awakening, written
by some of the world’s finest women writers. Around the globe and
across religions, the stories in this enthralling collection touch on
common themes: opening up, letting go, finding inner peace. This
collection beckons all women to be mindful and daring on their walk
along the sacred path.”
Where are you going to travel this
year? Are you pushing yourself toward those edges that enlarge the
mind, the heart, and the deep places of your being? The Africa journey
is for both men and women, but this is a good book to begin for women
who have to nudge the men in their lives toward stepping out of the
