Homily #1: Knowledge vs. Wisdom
By Jane Tawel
January 13, 2021
There is reasoning, and then there is reason.
Short-shrift of knowledge is a special need.
But rejection of knowledge is rejection of treatment,
To cure what ails the sufferer.
And when we speak of knowledge versus wisdom,
We put a puny light-weight in the ring with a Super Hero.
Oh, to be freed from the need to prove oneself correct!
And in the stead of thinking oneself knowledgeable,
To be imprisoned by a desire to be made wise and righteous
And make oneself simply, Known.
