The art of radical listening

Where does one hear The Lord?
How does one learn to listen for His voice?

Is it found on the lips of the street corner evangelist,
in the Sunday morning pulpit,
or the rustling pages of scripture?

What about a baby’s cry,
a train whistle,
or the solitary song of a cricket?

Does it float down with the autumn leaves
or crackle in the logs on a fire?

How do I listen for the Almighty?
Is it a matter of preparing my ears, my eyes,
Or my heart?

and if I quiet myself, will I recognize Who I hear?
