How often the chimes sing out, “Listen, listen, listen.” What do you hear?
Listen: a theme of the week
Last week I shared the opening words of The Rule of St Benedict, “Listen carefully, …” Through his words and the example of Anne Hutchinson we were invited to listen. This Sunday (2/10/2013) we heard the account of the Transfiguration as shared by Luke. The voice from the cloud picked up the theme of the previous week and sets on a course for this week:
Then from the cloud came a voice that said,
“This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!”
Luke 9:35 NRSV
Let us practice listening to the Chosen One this week.
