Adult Forum – Wisdom
September 25 @ 6:00 pm
Following a sermon this summer by The Rev. Steve Simmons on Lady Wisdom in Proverbs 8, one of our members asked several questions. Just who is Wisdom? How did concepts of Wisdom develop in Judaism? Do we find Wisdom in the New Testament? To explore some of these questions and the ways Lady Wisdom has influenced our understanding of Jesus, the Christian Education Committee is sponsoring a Fall Forum which will take place over three Wednesday nights, Sept. 25th, Oct. 2nd, and Oct. 9th. We will gather for supper in Nitschmann Hall at 6:00 p.m. and then hear from our speakers and respond to this topic from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m.
For our gathering in September, The Rev. Dr. Grace Ji-Sun Kim, will be our leader. Dr. Kim earned her Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. An ordained Presbyterian pastor, Dr. Kim serves as Associate Professor of Theology at Earlham School of Religion. She has written several books, the most pertinent for our topic: The Grace of Sophia: A Korean North American Women’s Christology. Kim will introduce us to the tradition of wise teachings in the world that shaped the book of Proverbs and other Jewish writings. She will introduce us to the personification of Lady Wisdom as God’s partner from creation through salvation history.
The Rev. Dr. Lynnette Delbridge and The Rev. Dr. Frank Crouch will lead the sessions on Oct. 2nd and Oct. 9th respectively. More information about their presentations will follow in the October Belfry.
