Touch Point: Listening to One Another
By Tom Griffith, D. Min.
Leadership Transformations, Inc.

When was the last time when you felt someone really listened to you? . . .
When after you spoke, you felt, “they really understood me—they get me?” This is the heart of real communication; it is “to make common”—to share understanding. Unfortunately, most do not experience a deep sense of common sharing in our communication very often. Yet, in Scripture James makes it clear, “. . . Take note of this, everyone should be quick to listen . . .” (James 1:19)

Touch Point: Open Handed Prayer
Compiled By Matthew E. Scott, M.Div. Leadership Transformations, Inc.

Opening our hands to God is no simple task. For in doing so, we are opening ourselves to be led by God to a place we would rather not go—a place of vulnerability. Prayer is not merely offering requests to God. To pray means that we open up our clenched fists. The following quotes from Henri Nouwen will help you move towards a posture of open-handedness.

Touch Point: Order of Love
Compiled By Kevin M. Antlitz, M.Div., Th M. Leadership Transformations, Inc.

“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Touch Point: Peterson on Prayer
Compiled By Kevin M. Antlitz, M.Div., Th M. Leadership Transformations, Inc.

“Prayer is not something we think up to get God’s attention or enlist his favor. Prayer is answering speech. The first word is God’s word. Prayer is a human word and is never the first word, never the primary word, never the initiating and shaping word simply because we are never first, never primary. We do not honor prayer by treating it as something that it is not, even when that something is, as we suppose, sacred and exalted…”.
