#AdventBookClub day 5 – week 7 – ‘The first King’

We come to the end of our #AdventBookClub journey with R.S. Thomas, with these words:

"wisdom must come on foot."

And I wonder… I wonder what sort of wisdom this is, that comes on foot? I wonder what I need to do (or not do) to slow down enough to encounter this pedestrian wisdom? I wonder what are the things I am chasing after that look like wisdom, but are not? I wonder how to shape a life open to the kind of wisdom that comes quietly, gently, unpretentiously?

And so – slowly, gently, with care and attentiveness, striving to be open to the quiet wisdom of the ordinary and the wild expanses of God – the journey goes on…

This year for #AdventBookClub we are reading “Frequencies of God: walking through Advent with R.S. Thomas” by Carys Walsh. Join the conversation on Twitter using #AdventBookClub or on Facebook by searching for the group ‘Advent Book Club’.
