Description or summary
Listening With All Your Heart, Soul, Strength, and Mind, a Living Compass seasonal resource. Lent is a time for introspection and self-reflection, a time to become intentional about listening more deeply to God, ourselves, and others. As we make this turn inward and commit to listening with more intention, we typically become intentional about changing the routine and rhythm of our daily lives. We may choose to take on a certain practice or habit. We may also choose to give something up.

Designed for use as an individual reflection and study, small groups, a congregational Lenten program, and/or a retreat, Listening With All Your Heart, Soul, Strength, and Mind provides a foundation to help us explore a deeper connection between faith and our capacity to listen to God. Each Sunday in this 80-page guide offers a reflection written by a featured writer; and every other day of the week begins with a scripture or quote, followed by a reflection, and an invitation to record any thoughts, feelings, or insights.
