Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

Do you really think so?

Perhaps the dog doesn’t know the answer
but she is a good listener
and will offer her love unconditionally.

Be a good listener.

“One of the greatest gifts God can give to an individual
is the gift of being a good listener.
If one is a good listener,
he or she can have a positive effect
on countless number of people,
and end up bringing help and hope to others.
The best gift one can give to others
is the gift of being a good listener.

A good listener is "other focused."
He centers his life on other people.

I pray that I will be a good listener every day
and that others will see in me
empathy, openness, focus and reflective listening.
Help me be a good listener I pray.”
- Ed Ostrom
