Our Story

What is it to listen? To listen, to truly listen is to attend to, to take in, to receive. To listen to another is one of the greatest acts of love we can ever give. To pay attention. To be present. To empty out of our striving to be heard and instead to hear. To listen to the sounds of our daily life, the sound of our spouse or children breathing their sleep; to hear the sounds in our sky and on our street; to hear the rhythm of our workmates steps in the halls; to attend to the craft and love bound into the music we resonate with – all of it calls for our attendance and acknowledgement. How much more to listen to the Voice of God, everywhere present with us and ever speaking if we would but attend and recognise it. Learning to be still is the first step of listening. Learning to love is its culmination.

“He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” Matthew 11.15

“But he who enters by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.” John 10.2-4


What is

“Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery it is.
In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness:
touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it,
because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.”
~ Frederick Buechner
