Recently KGO talk radio in San Francisco conducted a call-in poll. Ronn Owens invited listeners to express their opinion. Thirty-five percent said yes, 33 percent said no and 32 percent were undecided. One listener, aghast at the large number of undecideds, protested, "It’s this sort of apathy that’s ruining America."

The only problem with all these responses was that the radio station had never posed any question. The people were listening, but they weren’t attentive. They really weren’t tuned in. Often our bodies are in church, our mouths are singing, but we aren’t really tuned in. If that’s your habit, or experience– even today. Don’t be hard on yourself– it takes us all practice to be attentive and listen.
