Overview

Beginning of Wisdom: Sermons for Pentecost Middle Third by Sue Anne Steffey Morrow

"Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom," writes Sue Anne Steffey Morrow. "As we... deepen our understanding of wisdom's ways, it is my hope that our knowledge of the Hebrew Scriptures will be deepened, and our awe for the one God be magnified."

The ten sermons in this book are based on first lesson texts primarily from 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, and Proverbs. The sermons follow the Revised Common Lectionary.

I suggest that we approach Proverbs one at a time: dwell on one proverb, consider it, think about it, expand it in your view, relate it to your experience, to those who you know, argue with the proverb, find its loophole, probe it to see if there is truth or wisdom to be found.
(from the Proper 18 sermon)

Sue Anne Steffey Morrow is associate dean of the Princeton University Chapel. She graduated from Skidmore College and Union Theological Seminary in New York City. She served on the advisory committee of the Preaching Project and is a preacher at various United Methodist conference schools for ministry.
