My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry  —James 1:19

We recognize that we need each other’s help to become better listeners. I think that the greatest barrier to good conversation is that we’ve lost the capacity to listen. We’re too busy, too certain, too stressed. We don’t have time to listen. We just keep rushing past each other. This is true almost everywhere these days. One gift of conversation is that it helps us become good listeners again.  —Margaret J. Wheatley, Turning to One Another, 2002

Give me ears to hear, O God. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
