Sermon preached on Ash Wednesday 2017
The roots of knowledge are bitter. But the fruit of knowledge is sweet. This means when you begin to study something, whether it’s music or art or any other discipline, you have to do the grunt work of memorizing, of practicing, of painful discipline. But once you know it, it’s joyful. But study is not just for high schoolers or college students. Study is a part of what human life is.
