Listening to others
What does listening deeply really means? The articles in this issue of the CRC Bulletin attempt to address this question. Timothy Scott, CSB, reflects on the biblical exhortation to “hear.” It is a way of calling people to attention, to have concern for something that is primary. “In-depth” listening is at the center of spiritual accompaniment of the sick and the elderly. Denise Desmarteau, CND, outlines the main aspects of what this entails. Mario Bard, communications officer at the Aid to the Church In Need, Canada, reflects on the reality of refugees and displaced persons. The question to leave or to stay remains and captures their plight. The struggle to return home is just beginning. Nicole Bernier, CND, reports on a meeting that took place between the Association of Women Religious for the Rights of Women and a Muslim woman, Samia Amor, a lawyer and lecturer at the University of Montreal. An interreligious experience full of meaning.
