Several years ago I created a critical thinking workshop and taught it a few times at my church, where I was an associate pastor. It quickly became clear that critical thinking skills are sorely needed (and not just in churches).
I created a brand — The Thinkery — as a place where the workshop could reside. I started this blog, created more workshops, and built online and local meetup communities. All of these efforts sought to promote thoughtful living and cultivate the skills and traits of effective thinkers.
These days, when truth is obscured, such skills are needed more and more. While any and all truth is worth pursuing, one truth rises to the top. Here’s my conviction:
If God is real, He must be the most important and relevant reality in existence. Thus, the truth about God is worth pursuing.
I want to know the truth about God, whatever it is. I invite you to join me in this pursuit as I take what I’ve been doing here in The Thinkery and apply it primarily to the truth about God. You can learn more at elizabethwhitworth.com, where you’ll find a blog, online courses, books, and a podcast.
With this shift in emphasis, “The Thinkery” as a brand is going away. I always will be “in the thinkery”, as a thinkery is simply a thinking place. I am now choosing to focus my thoughts on the highest things. Will you join me?
