Making Good Mistakes

Philosopher and cognitive scientist Daniel C Dennett wrote, “Instead of turning away in denial when you make a mistake, you should become a connoisseur of your own mistakes, turning them over in your mind as if they were works of art, which they are.” In our worship today we will reflect on how wisdom can come from practicing this art of making good mistakes, and being open to the grace of learning.

The opening words this morning are by Gary Kowalski.

The opening reading is from "Because We Spill Not Only Milk" by Nancy Shaffer.
