Ecclesiastes: Life in Perspective
Community in Perspective
Ecclesiastes 4:7-12 | Ryan Falls & Holly Pankratz
I. The Problem of Isolation (4:7-8)
a. How it happens
b. What is creates
II. The promise of community (4:9-12)
a. It promises good things for you
b. It demands much from you
“The person who loves their dream of community will destroy community,
but the person who loves those around them will create community.”
III. The practice of community (4:9-12)
- When you hear the word community-what comes to mind?
- What has made it difficult for you to connect to community during this time?
- When was a time you leaned into community and found support- even if it wasn’t perfect community or support?
- Who is one person you would risk going deeper with and what is one step you can take toward that end?
