2nd Sunday of Lent – Abraham Sunday
What is listening with a “whole soul experience” and how important is it to embrace discernment? Rev. Beverly Gibson and Johnny discuss the significance of Abraham’s covenant conversation with God (Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18) and Jesus’s run in with two threatening Pharisees (Luke 13:31-35). Johnny shares his hero-worship of the “anti-authoritarian” Jesus, and Rev. Gibson answers the question: What is the strongest single characteristic of a disciple of Jesus?
Giving yourself to engaged listening (and responding) can connect you more to your faith, community and the people closest to you. Plus, it adds fullness and richness to your spiritual and daily life.

Gibson shares ways to be a more aware and engaged listener.
