Are You Really Listening?

June 14, 2019

“Every morning God speaks to us,” said Rev. Dr. Rose Booker Jones one week ago today.

She was preaching at this year’s Clergy Retirement Service at our Annual Conference.

I’ve known her a long time. Longer, in fact, than either of us will admit. She’s been a colleague, friend, prayer partner, District Superintendent, and side-bar-conversation-partner at a meeting when things got dull.

And she’s real.

Here’s the rest of Rose’s statement from a week ago today —

“Every morning God speaks to us,

‘I called you.

I formed you.

I kept you.

You are mine.'”

— She wasn’t kidding a week ago.

God’s not kidding today.

“Every morning God speaks to us, ‘I called you. I formed you. I kept you. You are mine.'”

In The Message’s version of Mark 4:9, Christ Jesus asks us, Are you listening to this? Really listening?
