Create Space: Learn the Art of Listening

Sermon Description

No one can argue that Jesus was the best when it came to the art of listening and creating safe spaces for others to share. But how did He do it? He always knew when to be quiet and when to speak. Just take His interaction with the woman “caught” in adultery (John 8). By listening to her accusers and writing in the dirt, Jesus modeled that silence is often the past way to help others. What is our role and posture when it comes to those who find themselves in the most vulnerable positions? How can we learn from the example Jesus offers us. Bishop Dave Musser—who is also marriage and family therapist—uncovers the methods of the best counselor who walked the earth. “Jesus stooped down and wrote in the dust with his finger.”
