A Listening Heart with Rev. Joyce Palmer

I have had some recent interactions where it has been a challenge to feel fully present. This experience has led me to wonder what opportunities, to listen with an open heart, have I missed? What attempts at gaining my attention have I missed because of my desire to keep things moving? The central question is how far will we go to show love to others?
