The Parish of Sandal Magna

Sermon Series on Wisdom for Living


At a time like this we are in need of Wisdom, the Wisdom from above that James writes about: "Real wisdom, God’s wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterised by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honour." 
To explore this theme we will be looking at passages from the Book of Proverbs. The late Eugene Peterson writes: "Wisdom is the art of living skilfully in whatever actual conditions we find ourselves in. Proverbs distills this all into riveting images and aphorisms that keep us connected in holy obedience to the ordinary."

We will be looking at themes such as Cultivating compassion, Speaking truth, Managing anger, Forging strong families, Giving generously and working wisely. Sermon slides are available for groups, and sermons are uploaded onto our web-site sandalmagna.com on Monday mornings.
