Listen: Learning to Be Present to Those Most in Need
For Benedict, the bedrock practice of justice, kindness, and hospitality is this: “Listen!” And the need for people who heed this call is growing. Senior citizens are facing increased social isolation and women and men of all ages remain hungry for a sense of belonging. Join Deacon Steve Arnold, a chaplain and spiritual director, for a morning of formation in the ministry of listening. Drawing on Scripture, the Rule of St. Benedict, and practical tools from the helping professions, participants will gain the courage and skills to be more present to those needing to be heard.
