Wisdom…

Proverbs 4:5-7Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Throughout history wisdom was considered a female construct often referred to in Greek as Sophia. What has been our ancestors’ commitment to Wisdom and what is our commitment moving forward in our contemporary society? Join Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty in her quest for a definition and understanding of wisdom. This Sunday is the Annual Meeting at First Parish a time when members are required to attend and vote on the budget, the incoming leadership and the overall work of this community. Please plan on attending.
