Genesis: Mrs. Which (A Wrinkle in Time, Chapter 3)

You can now listen to Episode 4 by clicking here. In this episode, “Genesis: Mrs. Which (A Wrinkle in Time, Chapter 3),” we really start to catch our stride!

Kailina reflects on the magic of teenage romance. Her story sparks a discussion about how girls and boys are socialized differently, how Meg and Calvin are perhaps meant to parallel the Biblical characters of Adam and Eve, how the trio of Mrs. Whatsit, Who, and Which are perhaps metaphors for the Christian Holy Trinity, and the need to strike a balance between scientific and religious thought.

For the last time this season, they use the sacred reading practice, Lectio Divina, to search for sacred wisdom in this chapter. They discover the opportunities for love that dissatisfaction and yearning can offer us and ponder the role of external affirmations in their lives.
