The Gift of the Past
Today is Eternity Sunday, a day when we remember those who died. God does not leave us alone, but gives us saints, past and present, who embody the wisdom from the past. Through the witness of the saints we are given gifts from the past that enable us to move into the future with Christ. We do not idolize the saints, but celebrate how God worked through ordinary people to show God to a world that doesn’t know God.

Practice the basics of faith
This is the last in a 3-part sermon series on Ecclesiastes. There are two main themes in Ecclesiastes. The first is that life is fleeting and transitory—like vapour. And the second theme is that we all die. In the face of such a reality, how are we to live? Ecclesiastes says it all comes down to practising the basics of the faith again and again: fear God and keep God’s commandments. This is the beginning of wisdom.

This is part two of a three-part sermon series on Ecclesiastes. The focus is on the human condition. We are finite creatures who are born, grown up, grow old, and die. Knowing that we are terminal can make a difference in the way we live each day. Because the time of our lives does not go on forever, we can learn to treasure the time being, to live today in gratitude for the time that God has allotted us. This is the beginning of wisdom.
