Speaking of Hunger: Sermons of Challenge and Hope



Seeds has received a grant from the H.C. Gemmer Family Christian Foundation to produce a second volume of Speaking of Hunger, a collection of sermons about hunger.  If you have preached or written a sermon about hunger—or if you have heard or read one recently, please let us know at!  We will include a dozen sermons, selected by a committee of judges.
