In the first verses of Ecclesiastes “The Preacher” makes his sobering thesis statement: the world is riddled through with vanity, futility, and frustration. Human beings, struggling to find meaning, instead meet meaninglessness at every turn. Even the very thing we were created for has become a pejorative four-letter word.
The best we can do is make the best of what comes.
Sound at all familiar? It should, because it’s been the nearly constant refrain almost from the beginning.
But what if beginning to move from meaningless to meaning is as simple as reframing things from an even older and mostly forgotten perspective?
I believe it is.
See you Sunday.
