Is Anyone Listening?
Pastor Rob Myallis   -  

September 10, 2023

We know the cycle:  Something happens.  Someone is enraged.  Internet explodes.  Other people shout in opposition.  Fragmentation and Exhaustion Result.  Repeat.

Jesus today offers a very different path (Matthew 18), one that is based on people listening, restoring relationships, and then coming to an agreement.

A reflection on the role of listening to each other and to God in pursuing reconciliation.

Reconciliation also involves Jesus listening to us; so I offer this piece of art (from the website of “Good Shepherd Church” in Elgin, IL.) that shows Jesus listening.  Obviously Jesus imparts wisdom.  But he also listens.
