This sermon is the first on a series on the Book of Ecclesiastes. We are studying this wonderful book of wisdom at our Sunday evening services in term 3, 2021. Ecclesiastes is such an important book for us to study – because it reminds us that there is nothing new under the sun and people back in King Solomon’s day were trying to find their purpose in life in all the same things people today are pursuing. Dale begins this recording by reading the passage, Ecclesiastes 1:1-2:23.
