Hi Friends,

As we continue in our series in Ecclesiastes this Sunday, we are going to be looking at some tough questions.  What do we do when time does not seem to be on our side? How can we get through challenging and frustration seasons? Where is God in all of this? These are just some of the questions that we will be looking at this Sunday, as we continue our series and consider the message of Ecclesiastes, “Is there more to life than this?”

Also, to help us dig in to this timely series, I’m going to do a live Q and A right after our service.  If you are interested in joining, you can use this link https://www.facebook.com/christchurchsouthphilly/live/.  It works even if you do not have a Facebook account.

Grace and peace,

Pastor Jeff
