Our Pastor is preaching on Ecclesiastes the strangest book in the Bible. When he started this series he remarked that it was his first time preaching on it in our Church. He preached on it once before somewhere else and had an article on it published. He has always found it difficult but seemed to explain it well. We are to obey the commandments and not to hope that on a certain day in the future all will be wonderfull. We are to enjoy and make the best of to-day. He mentioned a book on our affluent society. This writer has given a chapter each to the most wealthy countries in the world. How wealth does not bring happiness. That some of the happiest people in the world are the poorest. Be happy now, live now.

Personally I have always found Ecclesiastes an easy book to read, preach and understand. One of the many points that is being made by "The Preacher" is that he himself put to much emphasis on worldly goods and pleasures and not enough on those riches. So many people today do the same thing.
