Learning to Listen, a cochlear implant story

Three years ago, Phoenix attended a healing liturgy in his honor. His spirit and soul were apparent then...and this video from Lexi offers up where his strength comes from-a family and a community that loves and upholds hope and joy over fear and despair. God bless journies of faith that teach us to love the small gifts of birdsong and the textures of a life lived in love for each other.
