C.G. Jung

Our work in this world depends on us trusting ourselves. But do we believe in ourselves or do we actually trust ourselves? Join guest speaker Heide Cottam in a service exploring the nuances between belief and trust and how deep listening serves both

January 28: “The Gift of Good Questions”

Presenter: Chad Minteer

As we think this month about “Intention” starting out a new year and well on our way to new spring beginnings, we’re invited to think carefully about our connections with other people.

When was the last time someone asked you an open honest question? A question that invited you to reflect more deeply on your own life asked by a person who did not want to advise you or “fix” you but “hear you into speech”?

For most of us, this is rare. If we pay attention to our own interactions, we may find ourselves not really connecting with the shared humanity in others but instead listening with an ear to offer advice or fix or help or talk about ourselves.

The difference really is our intention and the gift we have to give is not knowledge of how to fix someone else’s problems but the gift of listening and asking good questions that remind people of their own often unsuspected inner resources.

We do not have to be skilled professionals for this to work well – it’s all about our orientation towards each other and our shared humanity.

Join us as we consider how we all may bear this gift.

Please Note:  We will also be welcoming and celebrating new members joining our Fellowship this Sunday.
