Day 26:

This reflection is a part of a month-long series titled, 30 Days of Healing, as we seek to be instruments of peace and change


As we near the end of this month and series reflecting on healing, I find myself hearing this one word in my prayer lately: “Listen.”

We do not know all the answers, and we certainly do not know what tomorrow will bring.

We can easily fall in the trap of talking and writing and sharing all that we know.

But there is so much that we do not know, and we have so much more to grow.

Perhaps what we need now, more than ever, is to simply listen:

  • Listen to your God who speaks in the silence.
  • Listen to your loved ones.
  • Listen to the stranger, those you might not understand.
  • Listen to spiritual leaders from a variety of traditions and experienceS, both living and passed.
  • Listen to musical artists, poets, authors, and speakers who speak to your heart and your soul.

As we heal, listening can inform us, guide us, as we grow and as we learn.

Let us continue to pray for one another.
