A Habit of Deep Listening

Bethel Lutheran and 1st Presbyterian share a Dwelling Day

Last Saturday, Jan. 19, we had a great day Dwelling in St. Louis’s University City. Here are some comments about the day:

“Take your time with the text. Listen to the word; to each other.”

“It was wonderful to validate my faith in conversation with the people I worship with every week.”

“One can really continue to get more out of a Bible passage time and again.”

“We laypeople can find things in the text that even pastors find new.”

“Great ideas about how to increase participation and reduce the time taken by each speaker – by requiring people to report their partner’s viewpoint rather than their own.”

“Within seconds of working with a partner, I felt connected with them, even at the lunch table. It was a warm feeling.”
