Chasing the Wind

Ecclesiastes & the Vanity of Life

"Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher… All is vanity."

What does it all mean? What's the point? This world, this life? Do our lives amount to anything or is it all a chasing after the wind?

Questions like these have plagued humanity more than any others! Is there anything more important than meaning? Is there anything more terrifying than being devoid of it?

Join us as we open the timeless and controversial philosophical giant in a new series, Chasing the Wind – Ecclesiastes and the Vanity of Life.

To assist you throughout the series we have developed a Journal Guide to help you read, reflect, and respond to the relevant bible passages as we unpack the book of Ecclesiastes.
