I was thinking about putting everything in one post, but I think it would be too long. So I'll just mention a couple of things now and a couple of things later.
Johnathan Rourke was the main speaker and I loved hearing from him again. He left GCC a little over a year ago and I have missed his passionate love of the word. He reminds me in some peculiar way of CJ Mahaney. Just a little anyway.
Ecclesiastes 2 was the passage of the retreat and John spoke for three sessions.
The title of these sermons was Disappointing Discoveries.
Session 1: Ecclesiastes 2:1-11
- Holy Scriptures give divine examples that we can look up to and learn wisdom from.
- Solomon is the great example.
- He was wise enough to enjoy some things to their peak and then stop. He guarded himself with wisdom.
- "The quicker we come to the reality that we will die and be forgotten, then the quicker we will have an eternal perspective and have the mindset we're supposed to."
