As a church family, we care about each other’s lives: what we’re celebrating, what we’re mourning, what decisions we are praying through, and everything in between
(1 Thessalonians 2:8, Romans 12:10, 15). Suggested time: 10-20 minutes

Read Ecclesiastes 1:9-10. Why do we often feel that the problems of our current age are “new” and therefore the outcomes are unpredictable (i.e. social media, political polarization, AI, etc.)? Is anything actually “new”?
Read Ecclesiastes 1:11. Is it comforting or stressful to you to think that nobody will remember your name 100 years from now?
