SERMON SERIES: ABSURD.
Certain things in life don’t add up. Evil people have plenty of money while good people struggle, you work hard for years only to have nothing to show for it, you spend hours and hours every week cleaning a house that’s just going to get dirty again…
The writer of Ecclesiastes confronts this frustrating reality head on, giving voice to the emotions and confusion that most all of us have felt. And as he does, he reminds us of a few key things we desperately need to remember...but all too often forget.
PART 1: ABOVE MY PAY GRADE
When life doesn't go the way we think it should, we're reminded of one critical truth--and remembering it will do us a world of good.
