Sharing prayer, faith, and life with others is about listening as preaching. As Dominicans who embrace contemplative life, we spend a good portion of our lives listening to God and others.
I can think of a recent example of “listening as preaching” with our New Orleans community. Sisters Pat Harvat, Judy Zynda, and Kitty Bethea hosted students and campus ministers from Siena Heights University and Barry University as part of their “alternative spring break.” The group worked with St. Bernard Project, helping to rebuild New Orleans.
Our Sisters shared a meal and prayer with the young people, and most importantly, listened. Listened to what it was like to see the devastation that still remains 10 years after Katrina, to meeting the unique people of New Orleans, and the how it felt to make a difference. Listening was an important preaching that day – one our students will not soon forget.
Sharing appeal, certainty, and presence with others is about tuning in as addressing. As Dominicans who get a handle on adroit life, we spend a not too bad portion of our lives tuning into God and others.
Thanks you for sharing the post ,it is really good!
Sharing petition, confidence, and existence with others is about tuning in as lecturing. As Dominicans who grasp insightful life, we spend a decent segment of our lives tuning in to God and others.
