Founding Pastor Rick Duncan joins us for the fifth week of "The Pursuit of Purpose" teaching series in the book of Ecclesiastes. Pastor Rick will be looking at Ecclesiastes 9:1-12 as he asks us "Are you approaching God like a skeptical, bitter, cynical, wounded employee or like a beloved child? Do you see God's hands as hands that punish, wound, or stiff-arm you or do you see His hands as hands that love, care, and guide you?" If we live life with only an "under the sun" mentality, then it's possible for us to become wounded, bitter, cynical skeptics. But if we live life with an "above the sun" attitude, then we can live as joyful, hopeful, faithful Beloved Children. At the root of it all is our view of God. Is He distant, punishing, or uninterested? Or is He loving, kind, and gracious?
