Under the Sun

SMBC 2019 Women's Conference

Life is fleeting so _______
How would you finish the sentence?

Life is fleeting so eat ice cream?
Life is fleeting so love your family?
Travel the world?
Play your favourite music loudly?
Retire early?

The writer of Ecclesiastes doesn't shy away from calling this life short, fleeting, transient... like mist. He observes that life under the sun can seem like it goes nowhere but simply circles around and around. Life is littered with both joys and disappointments. It can be puzzling, it can seem unfair.

God speaks in Ecclesiastes to open our hearts and minds to these realities and to show us how to navigate this fleeting life with godly wisdom. It's wisdom that looks to Him who is eternal, unchanging, just and richly generous.

This conference explored the Book of Ecclesiastes – to learn to trust the Lord more deeply and to enjoy his good gifts in this life, while we wait for the next.
