Jonas Cornelsen spoke about the eternal mystery and fragile reality described in his favourite book, Ecclesiastes. The eponymous author (Kohelet, Teacher in Hebrew) cries out that all is vanity – a word better translated as vapour to represent the transient, insubstantial and sometimes foul nature of our short lifespans. On Eternity Sunday we were reminded that while the symbols we use to remember our dearly departed may lose meaning over time, the values of those who shaped us can touch others deeply if we recreate them in our way of living. As we enter Advent, may the story of Jesus bring us together, because whoever is joined with all the living has hope (Eccl. 9:4). [KH]
