Through our character – an opportunity to reflect on important issues in our community
Adam McHugh wants us to know that our God is also a God who hears. We should not mistake divine silence for disinterest. “Listening begins when we learn that our heavenly Father listens to us,” writes McHugh. “The pattern of human life may be to listen first, but with the Lord, we are always heard before we hear.” God’s apparent silence is not a mark of his absence. It means that we have his full attention.”
Through our prayers — an opportunity to pray for the needs of our community
– Ask God to help you to listen, especially in the silence. Ask him to help you hear through the sacred text, times of worship and fellowship. Then take 5 minutes to be still and listen.
