Because the adjective <em>practical</em> is often used to qualify <em>wisdom</em>, it is easily assumed that thinking and good judgment are different, even antithetical in relation to wisdom. Yet this assumption would scuttle the <em>wisdom</em> of <em>astute </em>or<em> sound judgment</em> within life. Sagacity is possible because we can think. Thinking is the impetus to engage human existence with honest intelligence as a fulcrum by which we undertake numerous activities with creativity, purpose and integrity. Without such leverage, we could only make arbitrary decisions based on momentary impulses and reactions; our activities, as to whether these are worthwhile or have enduring outcomes, would be uncertain or capricious. Sagacity is astute engagement with human existence that can both test ideas through purposeful activity and modify previous propensities through thoughtful reflection.</p> <p>Sagacity is genuinely philosophical in seeking to be wise in engaging issues that affect life daily, within shared perceptions and difficult differences as to variegated views reflecting human aspirations and valuations. If Christian faith, education and praxis are to speak into human experience concerning integral life, it is imperative to become familiar with how human aspirations and valuations relating to freedom, ethics, identity and society have been formed, weighed, interpreted and expressed, even though these activities vary between cultures and invariably change from one generation to another. Philosophy is literally <em>love of wisdom</em> and so also love of sagacity. Sagacity is most relevant to and contiguous with positive Christian presence and expression amid human wrestling in contextual and practical ways with perennial ambiguities of existence.</p> <p>SAGACITY is published twice in a year, on June and December.

The Javanese are no different. They are taught (sometimes through parables and proverbs, sometimes through the <em>wayang</em>) what it means to have respect for others, especially those in positions of authority. They are taught the importance of living in harmony with their fellow man. They have learned that their leaders have an inner supernatural power that is God given, and therefore should not be questioned, especially as long as the leader is taking good care of them. The leader can also learn from the <em>wayang </em>character Semar, who though worthy of honor because of his position was willing to “humble himself” taking on the role of a servant for the sake of those he was serving. Within this article we look at how the study of Leadership Emergence Theory can enhance the lives and ministries of Javanese leaders.</p> 2022-12-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 SAGACITY Journal of Theology and Christian Education Gereja Metaverse 2022-08-10T14:01:21+00:00 Winta <p>The purpose of this writing is to see how far the church's readiness is in facing the changing times, especially digital technology.

So, the five books of The Major Prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, and Daniel) cover a significant time span and present a diverse range of messages. Isaiah, for example, spoke to the nation of Judah about 150 years before their exile into Babylonia and urged them to be faithful to God. By sampling, this study mainly discussed the two Prophets, Jeremiah and Daniel, based on their long call and the hardships they faced when delivering God's message to the respective place to which God sent them. This study primarily discussed the two Prophets, Jeremiah and Daniel, based on their long call and the hardships they faced when delivering God's message to the respective place to which God sent them. Jeremiah preached a message of God's judgment against the rulers and people of Judah for violating the nation's religious and legal traditions, but Hananiah opposed him, preaching a message of peace and salvation and foretelling the deliverance of the Israelite nation from the hands of their enemies. Jeremiah cried out to those same people on the verge of exile, pleading with them to repent. Jeremiah's Lamentations is a dirge written during Judah's exile. Ezekiel and Daniel, the last two Major Prophets, spoke and wrote to the exiles, encouraging them to remember that God was still in control and would eventually restore the spiritual fortunes of His disciplined nation. Daniel was first and foremost a God's servant, a prophet who demonstrated to God's people how to live a holy life. The significance of this study is to help readers understand the life and long history of the Prophets, as well as their patience and faithfulness to the Almighty Heavenly God.</p> 2022-12-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 SAGACITY Journal of Theology and Christian Education SEPER TOLEDOT ATAU BIBLOS GENESIOS 2022-12-05T03:43:40+00:00 Puji Swismanto <p>The purpose of this study is to find out about the genealogy of Jesus Christ which states that the incarnation did not occur spontaneously and has a long history.
