We gathered to discuss the spiritual practice of “Learn”. This series designed by The Episcopal Church ties each of the 7 spiritual practices to one of the readings during the Great Vigil of Easter. The one chosen for this week was Proverbs, which speaks about the force of wisdom present from before time with God the creator.
We engaged with the idea that we are to take time each day to learn “about God” and to “learn God” — in other words, use both our mind and heart to learn about and engage with God in our daily lives. One of the riches of our evening was when we shared what we believe we have become wise in and how we have used our wisdom (grown through our love of God) in offering it to others and changing the world to become more Christ-like.
