In step with the Spirit, how can we communicate faithfully as we encounter one another online?

Communicating faith is about living it, and sharing it with others, in word, and witness of life. These days, many people find themselves navigating the joys and struggles of life through screens and scrolling digital devices. As pilgrims on the journey, we are called to be intentional about how we share our stories and may wonder how our presence in digital spaces invites faithfulness. How can we communicate authentically as we encounter one another online? In Speak Lord, Your Servant Is Listening, pastoral theologian Daniella Zsupan-Jerome invites readers on a retreat—rooted in the Benedictine tradition—that promotes a spirituality of communication built on listening, engagement with the Word, and hospitality to others.

Intended as a devotional resource for all faithful communicators, Speak Lord, Your Servant Is Listening is a lectio divina-based guide that invites prayer and reflection around the theme of communication in the Bible. Through the lens of Scripture, readers will discover what each selected passage reveals about communication, and in particular, the realities of digital culture today. It is for anyone seeking a more life-giving way of being connected with one another faithfully out of a sense of Spirit and communion.

Daniella Zsupan-Jerome, PhD, is an assistant professor of pastoral theology and director of the Sustained Encuentro Program at Saint John’s University School of Theology and Seminary in Collegeville, Minnesota.

Reviews

"With this collection of timely and prayerful reflections, Dr. Zuspan-Jerome provides more than insight into a spiritual dilemma of our digital age. She offers a rehumanizing invitation to practice pausing, lingering with the word of God, and reorienting the way we communicate toward building up the Body of Christ. Imagine a world in which we more genuinely 'listen with the ear of our heart' and 'share our presence with one another.' That vision begins here."
Samuel Rahberg, author of Enduring Ministry: Toward a Lifetime of Christian Leadership
