This week's blog was written by Allison Hammond, Executive Dierctor of The Arcadia Institute. The third stop on the Learning Tour was Macon GA to learn about the Centenary United Methodist Church Roving Listeners. We heard about and saw the difference hearing community stories is making. From a bicycle program, to a community garden to redevelopment of the Mill Hill Neighborhood - taking time to listen builds community!
The Roving Listeners also use these kinds of questions when they visit people: What were you born doing well - what are your talents? What skills have you learned well? What are you passionate about? What are you able to teach? What would you like to learn?
Here is link to information about Centenary United Methodist Church Here is a video of the project Here is another clip of the Mill Hill East Macon Art Village that the Roving Listeners have been involved in. The Roving Listeners have been visiting neighbors in the area. http://www.macon.com/news/local/article74020412.html
