The Way of Prudence

T

 

Attached to this e-mail is a file containing a special piece of blogger content: A short sketch/play. It’s part of a series I started, trying to add some thoughts to the O Antiphons—the short daily prayers that come from Medieval times. (Summarized in hymn form, they constitute the content for “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.) This short play, “The Way of Prudence,” takes a sideways look at the Antiphon for December 17th, “O Sapiens”.

In the play, I imagine Sapiens to be a dog, and Prudence to be a Pilgrim of yore who, with friends and fellow believers, might be in need of some rethinking about the matter of wisdom.

I have imagined that this bit of admittedly whimsical writing might be useful for family devotions, staff meetings, church council reflection or just personal meditation. There’s nothing earth-shattering here—except for the notion that we all seek (and perhaps-desperately need) wisdom in these times.

I hope you find some utility in what I have written. And as always, if that’s not true, the printed copies of anything I write continue their usefulness as possible linings for your hamster or bird cages!
