The focus of our Breakfast gathering was the theme of Listening. How do we find time and space to listen to God and how important is it?
We began with this short except from Alias Smith and Jones. We consiered that hearing someone speak is not the same as listening to what they are actually saying. This difference is crucial if it is God who speaking to us.
We then thought about ‘Active Listening’ and the need to deal with the distractions that prevent us from listening effectively to God. Finally we actually did some listening, which proved very helpful and brought a real sense of peace to the room.
Then it was off to breakfast, splendidly prepared by Mark and Amie (thanks guys!) and an excellent time of discussion.
