We live in a unique moment in human history — the Information Age — where we are exposed to an incredible amount of content, opinion, and options on how, exactly, we can live a life that counts. With so many voices, it’s important to consider a couple of things:
1. What is all this connection doing to my brain? Study after study is beginning to show that our brains have changed. The ways we process information, the ways we we approach contemplation and sustained thought, the places we go for truth and guidance on the deepest questions of life — it’s all in flux. And in all the changing.
2. Where should we turn for guidance? Who can help us understand what life is meant to be and how we can learn to live it to it’s fullest? How can we move from being connected and informed to living wisely?
In the scriptures, wisdom is a woman. She is God’s great gift to creation. She makes her place in the public squares and she calls out to anyone who will listen. She promises that her ways are pleasant and all her paths are peace; she is a tree of life to those who will take hold of her, a deep blessing for those who will hang on.
Join us this week as seek the Spirit together to hear Wisdom’s voice.
