Diedrich Bonhoeffer, a German theologian who was executed by the Nazis, stressed the importance of listening. He said, "the beginning of love for other Christians [read ‘others’] is learning to listen to them." Today, we communicate via abbreviated text messages and, when face to face, do we really listen?
Some books on the topic are:
“The Art of Spiritual Listening,” by Alice Fryling
“The Art of Listening in a Healing Way,” by James Miller
“Conversation- the sacred art: Practicing Presence in an Age of Distraction,” by Diane Millis
“Are You Really Listening,” by Paul Donoghue and Mary Siegel.
All are available in the bookstore.
