“Wisdom is seeing with God’s eyes.” – Pope Francis
Scripture and the Tradition of the Catholic Church provide an Abundance of wisdom, though it can often be challenging to apply it to our lives. To help you learn to gather and live with greater wisdom, we will begin a Jeff Cavins 8 week study titled Wisdom: God’s Vision for Life.
Wisdom invites you to experience the transforming power of taking time to apply God’s wisdom to you own life. You will learn to see his vision, experience the peace of knowing God cares for you, and you will see how God – and only God – can show you a path through any circumstance. The eight 30-minute videos will guide you through a variety of themes drawn from the wisdom literature of Scripture – Proverbs, Wisdom, Sirach, and Ecclesiastes teaching you how to actively seek out sound guidance and increase your sense of peace in navigating life. In everything from friendships to finances, from making decisions to attaining peace of mind, Scripture offers a vision for happiness and well-being. With this program, you will learn how to gather, gain, and grow in wisdom, and you will experience the joy it brings to your life.
In this program, you will:
- Discover what wisdom is ( and what it isn’t!)
- Learn new habits for increasing wisdom in your daily life
- Gain confidence, through role models and practice, in living according to God’s vision
Participants of Wisdom use a Journal which contains home reading assignments, engaging study questions, pages for lectio divina, talk notes for the video presentations, and responses to the questions. Cost of the Journal will be $15 to $20 depending on the number of people that sign up.
