Plundering the Egyptians: How to take the good from secular wisdom and leave the bad

Do you ever find yourself seeking inspiration from secular books, podcasts, or lectures? I get it. Sometimes, the best guidance comes from unexpected places. But here’s the thing, how do you know if what you are learning aligns with our faith?

I’ve been pondering this too, and I’m excited to share some practical strategies on how to navigate this delicate balance of acquiring worldly wisdom and staying true to the faith. I call it “plundering the Egyptians”. Join me as we talk about how to discern, ask fundamental questions, and align secular wisdom with the teachings and mission of the Church.

A sneak peek of what we’ll explore together:

  • Embrace continuous learning for personal and mission-driven growth.
  • Uncover practical tips for discerning valuable wisdom from all sorts of sources.
  • Dive into the art of aligning those secular insights with our faith mission.
