Finding Favor by Brian Jones, Free for CAPC Members
Jones helps us think rightly about the intersection of faith and blessing, setting straight some of the tainted notions we have picked up from the world at large.
Being a better listener isn’t easy. Not only are they many messages and voices competing for our ears, but it is also a complex skill to master.
In this episode of Persuasion, Erin Straza and Hannah Anderson invite InterVarsity Press author Adam S. McHugh (ThM, Princeton Theological Seminary) to share from his recent book, The Listening Life: Embracing Attentiveness in a World of Distraction (InterVarsity Press, 2015). As an ordained Presbyterian minister and spiritual director, McHugh has served at two Presbyterian churches, as a hospice chaplain, and as campus staff with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. His ministry has taught him what it means to be a better listener in a noisy world. Listening changes our relationships with God and others, enabling us to settle down inside so we can practice humility by lending our ears to others. We must learn to listen—to God, others, our emotions, creation, and more—if we are to become the people God means us to be.
