O Come, O Wisdom …
to us the path of knowledge show,
and teach us in her ways to go.
In this four week Advent study (perhaps more like a quest), we trace the path of Wisdom knowledge through four books of the Bible.
Proverbs … exploring the place where Wisdom begins and the call to “wake up.”
Psalms … when the heart cries and we deal with the hard questions of life.
Ecclesiastes … inviting us to seek happiness in a life of contradictions.
Song of Songs .. bringing our longing into deep relationship.

Frequently Asked Questions about Practical Things
1. Our church doesn’t have an internet connection. How will this work?
The Audio Recording is easily downloadable. You can download (directions on the Wisdom webpage) and save it to a laptop or computer. Once downloaded and saved you don’t need internet to play it. You might need laptop speakers.
2. Can we share the weblink and password to the Wisdom page with participants?
Yes. When you purchase Wisdom ($25) you can share the weblink and password to the Wisdom webpage with other leaders (you can have more than one group on your pastoral charge/parish) and participants. This is helpful when someone misses a session.
3. We might meet once a month instead of weekly, how long do we have access to the webpage?
You have access to the page until March 30, 2016.
4. Can we use the material in Worship instead of a Study Group?
Yes, I know leaders who use the Small Groups as a focus for worship. You are free to use the material as you wish – within your pastoral charge.
5. We don’t have a credit card. Can we pay by cheque?
Yes. Please make cheques payable to Janice MacLean.
6. I always seem to get mixed up ordering online….
My shop is fairly straightforward but you can always email me with your name, address, phone number and email address where you want to receive the weblink and password and I will order for you. You will receive the order confirmation email and then the second email (when payment is confirmed) with the weblink and password. You will then happily send me a cheque! (payable to Janice MacLean).
7. Once I order how long does it take to get the second email with the weblink and password to the Wisdom Page?
If you pay by credit card you receive the second email as soon as I get to my computer and confirm payment. Always within 24 hours, often much sooner. If you elect to pay by cheque, I reserve the right to confirm once I receive the cheque. However, if you don’t receive it by the time you need it, just email me.
8. I’ve lost the email with the weblink and password.
It happens. Just email me. I’m happy to help if you are having any issues with downloading, etc.
