Double Listening

“The phrase ‘double listening’ has always been significant to me. And it means that we’re called to listen to both the Word of God, and to today’s world, in order to relate the one to the other.”

John Stott (following on from Karl Barth and many others, I’m told)

I think it’s been one of the most influential concepts to me in life, having the newspaper in one hand and the Bible in the other.  Regardless of what worldview I followed, I’d want one that gave time to understanding the world and those around me.  More on it here.
