About

Welcome to Listening Heart Ministries!

This is a place where you are invited to come away and rest as we listen to each other share the wisdom of the ages read (or written) aloud, share the story of our own heart’s journey through time, and share conversations about how to walk the way of faith with courage and joy.

My name is Aliel Cunningham and I am a professor of Linguistics, a writer about the phenomenology of time, relationships, and a fellow pilgrim along the Way.
Listening Heart Ministries is dedicated to cultivating a space which invites you to step away from your frenetic schedule of doing into a place of being still and listening deeply for the voice of wisdom and truth and to our own hearts response as cultivating habits of listening through story, conversation, and prayer.
Listening Heart Ministries is a place where we invite the sharing of life experiences related to our relationship with listening to time, heart, and truth as we inhabit stories, wonder, and our unique faith journeys in order to encourage and engage others in knowing Christ more deeply each new day.

“For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him,  having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints…”    ~Ephesians 1:15-18
