Wisdom from Above

19 September 2021

Book: James, Mark, Psalms, Wisdom

Sermon given by the Rev. Mark Galloway (Bishop-retired) on 17 Pentecost (9/19/2021).

What is “the wisdom from above”? If there is anything lacking in the world today, it is Godly wisdom and openness to reason. The Rev. Galloway urges Christians to cultivate wisdom by clinging to the only things which will endure: Faith, Hope, and Love. Our neighbors are sick because they have no Hope. And because they have no Hope, they have no Faith. And without Faith, Love cannot abide, and other ideologies rush in to fill the vacuum. May Christians today boldly stand upon the wisdom from above!

Readings: Wisdom 1:16-2:1, 6-22; Psalm 54; James 3:16-4:6; Mark 9:30-37
