Well it is nice to be back in Canada for a few days, which makes it sound like international travel is just a regular part of my life, which it most certainly is not. Notwithstanding it is nice to be back. I was away last Sunday watching Heather’s niece (which makes her my niece too I suppose) get married in a very lovely resort near Cancun. The picture was taken by one of my sisters-in-law.
I will be away the next two Sundays on a work trip at what will undoubtedly also be a nice resort, this one near Puerto Vallarta. Not a difficulty part of a tough life by any stretch of the imagination!
This Sunday the Lectionary took me in the direction of wisdom and foolishness. I have preached about wisdom before but I don’t think I have ever done so from exactly this perspective. One of the first things that is necessary if you are talking about wisdom is to make a clear differentiation between wisdom and intelligence/cleverness/etc., once that is discussed then you can get to work on how wisdom and foolishness might look.
I enjoyed thinking about wisdom and foolishness [insert sophomoric joke here] and I hope that you will find some value in my reflections.

Warm blessings, until next time.
