The Spiritual Discipline and Art of Christian Listening

  1. Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s “The Ministry of Listening” Life Together
    1. “Christians have forgotten that the ministry of listening has been committed to us by Him who is Himself the great listener and whose work we should share.” (p. 98-99)
    2. “It is God’s love for us that He not only gives us His Word but also lends us His ear…Christians, especially ministers, so often think they must always contribute something when they are in the company of others, that this is the one service they have to render. They forget that listening can be a greater service than speaking.” (p.97)
