Let Us Be Simple, and Turn into the House of Wisdom

One of the stork capitals on the exterior of Frank Lloyd Wright’s studio and home in Oak Park, IL. We can see a tree of life, and architectural scroll, and four storks who represent wisdom and fruitfulness. This sculpture was designed by Richard Bock.

We are encouraged in Sunday’s First Reading from the Book of Proverbs (Pr. 9:1-6) to seek wisdom.

Wisdom has built her house,
she has set up her seven columns;

she has dressed her meat,
mixed her wine,
yes, she has spread her table.

She has sent out her maidens;
she calls from the heights out over the city:

“Let whoever is simple turn in here;”

To the one who lacks understanding, she says,

“Come, eat of my food,
and drink of the wine I have mixed!

Forsake foolishness that you may live;
advance in the way of understanding.”
