Sophia is the Greek word for wisdom and within the story of Christianity, different traditions – such as the Eastern Orthodox Church – have adopted the feminine imagery of Sophia as an icon of wisdom. I have chosen Sophia as the name of this podcast series because of the people I’ve chosen to interview; I believe, as they share glimpses of their journeys with our Triune Creator, they are voices of wisdom that we all can learn from in this podcast series – as each of them have profoundly spoken into my life; I encourage you have a listen and let their wisdom seep into your pores.
