Speaking Up

We have to listen with more than our ears. We have to also listen to our hearts, which — as it turns out — is also linked to our imagination. We need to imagine the other person’s circumstances.

Our Story

When we overhear the prayers of others, they sound just like our prayers. And it reminds us of the main theme of the Body of Christ: this place is a refuge for all people. Photo credit: “Linda” on Flickr.


Our Psalm calls us to cultivate spaces, and to be people together who are safe, who help each other be fully ourselves, who welcome those around us to be fully themselves, as well. That is how we all find rest.
