The Myth of Control - Ecclesiastes 1:1-11
This book of Solomon is not, as some suppose, a treatise on the meaningless of life for those who don't believe. It is instead a crucial primer for the faithful in how to live during times when simple cause and effect relationships between faithfulness and blessing are not set in a straight line. For sometimes God draws straight with crooked lines. Sometimes the church's pace is marred by a limp and her triumphs are cleverly disguised as tragedies.
