On Wisdom & Intelligence – Rev. Aaron Payson, Preaching

Understanding the difference between intelligence and wisdom may be as simple as understanding the difference between knowledge and understanding.  Or, as one commentator put it recently while reflecting on Socrates, while intelligence is the art of knowing, “wisdom is the art of knowing that you are not wise.”  This Sunday we’ll explore the distinction between these two concepts and ask how it is that they both play a role in life as we are experiencing it in the first quarter of the 21st century.  We’ll explore ancient and contemporary knowing and wisdom along the way asking how the distinction between intelligence and wisdom informs our life, choices, and future.
