First of series on Ecclesiastes by Dr. Jerry Rueb
Introduction: Today we start a journey from the opposite side of where we have been in the book of Philippians. Ecclesiastes is not a happy book –It is a 3000-year-old lament about how empty, pointless and meaningless life is without God.
Jessica: Pastor Jerry introduced Ecclesiastes as “one of the most depressing books of the Bible.” I’m sure that’s why some of us steer clear of it altogether.
But he began this series three Sundays ago and each message has been rich in insights and wisdom for life in the 21st century. If you want to watch this series live with us, go to http://cclb.churchonline.org/ at 11 AM on Sunday mornings (Pacific time, USA) for the live-streamed service.
