A Heart to Listen: Learning to Become a Listening Person (2nd Revised edition)
By: Michael Mitton (author)Paperback
Listening has become a lost art in our world, which has grown ever noisier, more superficial and stressed. We forget about listening not only to others but to God, to ourselves, to our communities - and even to the needs of our planet. If we do not listen, we cannot hope to grow in wisdom, to deepen relationships with others, or to share our faith in sensitive and appropriate ways. This new edition of A Heart to Listen explores how, with God's help, we can relearn the essential art of listening. Michael Mitton interweaves biblical reflection with insights from many years of listening ministry in the UK and abroad. To speak to heart as well as head, he concludes each chapter with an episode from a creative story that tells of people listening and learning from one another in a challenging cross-cultural setting.
The Revd Michael Mitton is Project Officer for Renewing Ministry in Derby Diocese.
