Lenten Sermon Series: Holy Listening, Holy Speaking
From the birth of Christianity, Lent has been a significant time in the life of the church. It is a time when each of us has an opportunity to pare back and refocus on the presence of God in our own lives. Our theme this Lent will be Holy Listening, Holy Speaking. There are a number of reasons that this topic feels important to me right now.

  • First, for a number of months, we have been looking at issues of race and bias, which require a profound ability to hear the pain and disenfranchisement of our brothers and sisters of color.
  • Second, we are continuing that process in our new program of Trust Circles, which is about creating safe space for people to speak and be heard.
  • Finally, we are moving quickly to our time of General Conference in May, which is the place that we should be listening most carefully to each other, and often do the least.

At the core of what it is to be Methodist is John Wesley’s concept of “Holy Conferencing,” in which we affirm that the Spirit works with us in our discernment when we engage in healthy conversation with one another. As is our practice during Lent, we will use the Lectionary texts each week in worship.
