In spite of the change back to Daylight Savings Time, we had a hardy attendance yesterday, but we did miss some of our ‘regulars’ and look forward to having you back with us. Diana and I loved having our long-time friend, Evelyn Gerdes, make a very early drive from Charlotte to attend the class.

Anne Winfield gave a thoughtfully, well-crafted opening prayer which set the tone for the opening discussion of conventional wisdoms we have heard most of our lives, like “A penny saved is a penny earned” – “the early bird catches the worm” – “early to bed and early to rise, makes us healthy, wealthy and wise” – and many more.

Michael guided the discussion from these conventional wisdoms to the aphorisms and parables of Jesus – with a focus on the Prodigal Son. New insights were gained about the loyal son who stayed home and his concerns for fairness for his loyalty.

Karen Van Manen then gave a moving reading of Robert Frost’s poem: The Road Not Taken which stimulated some terrific all-class sharing of critical life choices which have made all the difference.

Next Sunday we will be discussing Chapter 5 – Jesus, the Wisdom of God:Sophia Become Flesh.
