Wisdom. Is it something to be found? Something to be grown? Something we can get from others who are wise? Something that only experience teaches us?
There are sections of the scripture that are known as Wisdom Literature. Here are found reflections on wisdom, often musings on what wisdom does for people, and what lack of wisdom does to people. These are not books that magically impart wisdom on the reader. They may be seen as words to breathe in, inspiration for reflecting on your own inner wisdom.
The next several weeks find the lectionary in the book of Proverbs – the best-known book of Wisdom Literature in scripture. I invite you to join me in worship as we explore the many ways of growing wisdom.
Peace to you................... Jeannie
