A reoccurring action step that’s been mentioned in all our conversations on racial reconcialliation this week is the importance of listening. How do we become better listeners? How do we stop formulating our response to hear what those around us are communicating? Today we will explore the brain science behind being fully present and connected to those we love with Charles Stone. Charles will tell us about the art of holy noticing and how it can help us pay attention to God as he works in us, our relationships, and our world. He’ll bring us back to this spiritual discipline that is often lacking in our fast paced, social media saturated world.
