More shameless self-promotion

Another column from the 13-week series I’m writing for Mennonite Weekly Review is online. This one (Wide Open Spaces) focuses on several chapters in Ecclesiastes:

Many of us harbor the illusion that we have a great deal of control over what happens to us. Inevitably, however, something crushes that deception: a sudden illness, a car accident, a natural disaster, the loss of a job, someone’s death, a war, a terrorist act. Then we remember what little control we actually have over our lives, those we love and the world around us.

Ecclesiastes’ Teacher reminds us of that, too. But he also points out that Someone is in control. And that has an enormous impact on how we approach and experience life’s seasons and turns.
