Choosing Wisely

The Rev. D. Dixon Kinser will present Choosing Wisely: The Wisdom of the Proverbs for a High-Anxiety Digital Age at 10:15 a.m. in Colhoun A on September 24, October 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29.

Have you ever had trouble sleeping because you were worried about something? Have you ever wondered why entertainment news gets as much airtime as humanitarian crises? Do you ever question if our culture has lost the ability to discern what is truly important and what is not?

If these questions resonate with you, then there is good news for you: you are not alone. Human beings have wrestled with these same issues for thousands of years and there is a whole body of literature to help us navigate them: The Wisdom Tradition.

Join Dixon for a six-week Bible study exploring the history, theology and central themes of the book of Proverbs. Proverbs means “to choose” and this class will demonstrate the ways ancient wisdom can help us all to choose wisely in an age of fake news, celebrity gossip and high anxiety.
