Orthodox Studies in the Faith
Learning to Live Wisely
Every year books are published with titles containing the same first two words: “How to…” By reading these books we can learn how to get a job, a federal grant, a divorce, free publicity, or even save thousands on a European vacation. Experts out there will make you an expert at just about anything these days.
All these books offer wisdom – a skill in one area or another. We all need wisdom to live successfully. Wisdom brings success and prosperity in our work, in dealings with family and friends, and in our relationship with God.
One book of the Bible – the Proverbs of Solomon – specializes in wisdom. It gives us direction and guidance that is practical, concrete, reasonable, wholesome, understandable, shrewd and fruitful.
Join us in our Bible Study as we explore the Proverbs of Solomon and the wisdom that he has shared with the world.
Join us Wednesdays in the Vallas Building
