Life: A Misty Phantasm – Pastor Haydn’s Sermon – 3rd of June 2018

What is the meaning of life, and how do we handle it?  Doesn’t being a busy buzzing bee fix it?  What about more study?  What about novelty?  What about going on a holiday?  Well, the Bible has some raw, honest, unvarnished words to say about life on this side of death, and it’s rather sobering.  Our time here is a misty vapour, like warm breath coming out of a mouth on a freezing winter morning: there one second, gone the next. It’s short and fleeting, but we can make the most of it.  Here is my sermon on this from Ecclesiastes 1 (c.f. 1 Corinthians 2:1-16).  This is Ecclesiastes 1 Readings (English)

Before the sermon, my congregation watched this stand-up comedy speech by Jerry Seinfeld (from 1:13 to the end):

God bless, Pastor Haydn.
