A 3-Part Interactive Workshop Series to help seekers and skeptics find life’s true meaning…
Workshop 1: Time, Materialism & Wealth
A wise man in the Bible once observed: “I have seen everything that is done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind.” (Ecclesiastes 1:14)
Everyone is searching for meaning in life…
Viktor Frankl, an Austrian neurologist, psychiatrist, philosopher, and Holocaust survivor once observed, “that people have enough to live by but nothing to live for; they have the means but no meaning.”
Many people today feel exactly this way. We live in one of the most prosperous places on the planet with a higher standard of living and wealth than the majority of the world’s population, yet many still feel like their life lacks purpose. We live as if life’s goal is – the one who dies with the most toys wins. Shows like MTV Cribs display to us images of ‘the good life’ – the best houses and possessions this life has to offer. But if money brings happiness, why is it that so many of the most famous, beautiful, rich and powerful people still struggle with intense depression and meaninglessness?
So, we must honestly ask:
Is there more to life than material prosperity, luxury and wealth?
Why is it that these things fail to satisfy our soul’s deepest yearnings?
Why do we always feel like time is running away on us?
Where is hope to be found if not in the things of this world?
Can we rightly enjoy the good things of this life?
We’ll be considering these questions and more in this first session of this workshop series.
Join us for the second part of our series…
