Ecclesiastes: The Beginning

We will be studying Ecclesiastes (Abrev. ECC) for this course of study.  I tend to rely on greater minds than mine to provide background material.  Therefore right at the start, I will give you a reading list so that  we can be on the same plane when discussing this very interesting and very important book of the Bible.  Hold on tight...it's going to be a bumpy ride!

First order of business.
Background:

We will be going through the book verse by verse and commenting on the ideas, thoughts and applying the lessons learned to our own life.  As I said, this will be fun!

Enjoy the  Word of the Lord for us today...even though this was written thousands of years ago, you will see that it truly is the 'living word of God'.

Blessings as you follow this!
