Season 2: Episode 3 | Choosing to Listen Rather than Fix

Continuing the story of the Emmaus Road, Jesus plays dumb and models what spiritual companionship can look like. How do we become the kind of person who can listen rather than fix, and stand still being sad rather than rushing in with our own advice? In episode 3, we discover some great questions that can help us be better spiritual companions. Some great thoughts for leaders even if you don’t use a toolbox! The episode ends with a beautiful prayer; we hope you can pull over to the side of the road, stop what you’re doing, find a quiet spot and join us.
