Dear Friends,


Are you listening? The Para-Professional Counseling class underscores that question, which will reverberate through all of our programs this coming school year—our full semester courses, conference, retreats, and seminars.


God calls us to listen: “Hear [shema], O Israel. . . .” Listen, people of God. Listen to what the Lord says—through Scripture, the Hebrew language of the Old Testament, the voices of our fellow human beings in bondage around the world, the words of our brothers and sisters spoken in counseling relationships, and through our hearts as we open toward the Lord who is always speaking into this world with truth and love.


For more than 30 years, New College Berkeley has offered opportunities to listen to God, helping us calibrate our spiritual hearing and improve the acoustics of grace in our lives. Take time this fall to attune to God. We all are asked, “Are you listening?”


Blessings, in Christ,
