The Ministry of Listening
by Ben Sansburn on March 17th, 2022
Throughout our series in 1 John, I've been returning to one of the most profound books on Christian community - Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Life Together. Bonhoeffer's insights into healthy community and our human tendencies that fracture community are incredibly helpful. Loving our brothers and sisters well isn't always easy, but it is worth it! I wanted to share a convicting and challenging passage from Bonhoeffer on how we press into one another through the 'ministry of listening.'
