“Of Wisdom and Wonder”

Rev. Axel Gehrmann and Ann Johnson

Religious wisdom is often associated with the deep insight and understanding we may acquire in the course of a long life. We imagine the young are foolish, while our elders are wise. And yet, spiritual teachings don’t necessarily agree. Some Buddhists seeking enlightenment strive to cultivate a beginner’s mind, and some followers of Jesus believe we must be like children to enter heaven. What can we learn from the distinct wisdom and wonder of the child?

This is Bring a Friend Sunday. We encourage you to take this week as an opportunity to invite a friend who might enjoy learning about our church to join us.
