15 WHAT IS WRONG CANNOT BE MADE RIGHT. WHAT IS LOST CANNOT BE RECOVERED This book gives us a longing for a King who will come and right the wrongs and recover all that’s lost! WHAT IS WRONG CAN BE MADE RIGHT. WHAT IS LOST CAN BE RECOVERED.
In this series, we seek meaning by looking at one of the most difficult books of the Bible to understand - Ecclesiastes. What we find is that a life spent in pursuit of pleasure, achievement, and control eventually leaves us empty.
