Engage: Listening Like Jesus 
Tom Atchison   -  

Passage: Mark 5:24-34 

Theme:  Mark captures the story with an amazing line: “Jesus kept looking to see.”  He is interested in God’s work, but then Jesus listened to her entire story.  Perhaps one of the best ways we can show people dignity is to listen without judging.  So, as we think of 3-D Living, part of effective impact for the gospel is ‘discovering their story.’  In a time when each has his or her own story, we need to take time to listen.
