“The great listener” by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Christians have forgotten that the ministry of listening has been committed to them by Him who is Himself the great listener and whose work they should share. We should listen with the ears of God that we may speak the Word of God.”

–Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together (New York: Harper & Row, 1954), 98-9.
