Language helps us understand and interpret our world and to reach out to one another. We learn to speak precisely so that what is heard will be heard accurately. But Nelle Morton suggests that there is a deeper hearing that precedes speech, that we are heard into speech, into being. She says: “A great ear at the heart of the universe–at the heart of our common life–hearing human being to speech–to our own speech.” Join Rev. Leslie Takahashi for this service.
