Welcome to week 14 of the God’s Great Purpose series. This week we are exploring the book of Ecclesiastes. There are a number of different ways we’ve put together to do that, so we hope you find something that helps you.
Introduction to Ecclesiastes

Follow these simple steps, and use them to reflect on the passage (for a fuller description of the process, click here.) Allow 10 to 15 minutes for the whole process.
Read, slowly and a few times.
Meditate, turning over what you’ve read in your mind. Are there certain parts that stand out? Dwell on them.
Pray, bringing your reflections before God, asking what it might mean for you.
Listen, giving God a space to bring into focus what He is ministering to you.
