What does it mean to be a people for God's presence?
Looking at the importance, and some practical ways, of abiding in the presence of Jesus.

In chapter 5, the Preacher looks at how to avoid meaninglessness in our worship of God.
In chapter 4, the Preacher resumes his observations of the vanity of life under the sun; looking at the hevel of labour, loneliness, & politics. Life, work, and companionship are gifts from God, but they don't truly satisfy. They do point to ultimate satisfaction only found in Jesus.
