faJhlO~ They fit in. they make s~H: But-dog,life make sense? Bits a~id ~pi~" of it do. But what's I~e, lill~tit? Does life, my life, y,C~ II~, the llfe of manl~ind, fit i~t0 any conceivable pattern, or ij it a mean/ngless madness in the midst o~ An eh~pty universe? & Stranp hek The strangest book in the Bible was written by a man who was haunted bY this question. Does T~ema~e sense, and if ~o, what? e boor called Ecclesiastes tells of this/man's search for the mean- ing of life, and of his conclusions. What makes the book strange is not the ~queztion. It is the answers that are strange, or rather the an- swer. For his main conclusion is that we don't know. The writer of Ecclesiastes is what might be called a tired cynic. He had tasted the cup of life and found it bitter, or rather he had tried to drink and found the cup empty. One mournful refrain comes over and over,--"aU is vanity and a striv- ing after wind." Vanlty--- not meaning to say pride, but empti- ness. Life is like a man trying to catch the wind. He can't do it mmgs are full of weariness." & Few Certainties And yet llfe, even foi" this strange old man. is not entirely a swamp. As it is in a real swamp, so it is with life, here and there in the bog are small solid islands. Some of these islets of certainty he names (At least for him they are certain.) One is the fact, which he feels he has to accept, that this life, for all its good, has evil to match. Light and dark--good and evil--cause for rejoicing and cause for mourning--seem to have their settled places. There is a time for everything, he says, and then he Lines up good-and-bad pairs, such as weeping and laughing, tilling and healing, losing and seeking, hate and love, war and peace. This is one of the certainties of life, that not all of it is good. Ec- clesiastes more than hints that we might as well admit this and make the best of it. Man cannot figure out what God has done; so the thing for men to do is to en- joy themselves as long as they live. If sorrow is real, so is joy. Furthermore, it is possible to work at something, and to enjoy what one has done. In short, this tired old cynic is not altogether a cynic, because he does believe in a few things. One bit of wisdom we can take from him at this point is that there are unpleasant fea- tures of life that cannot be changed. Waste no time quarrel- ing with life; accept it! Fear 6odl One of the strange features about Ecclesiastes is that the author, who believed so little that was good, still did believe in God. It was not a high faith that he had. It was nothing like the faith (for example) of a Saint Paul. God for Ecclesiastes is not a Companion, he knows nothing of God's love. "God is in heaven and you upon earth," he says, "therefore let your words be few," that is, God is so far away that you'd better not say too much about him, he lives in a different world. Never. theless, though God cannot (this man thought) be known or loved, he can be feared. You can make vows to him, you can do some service for him God has no pleas- ure in fools; so don't be one. Empty words grow many; don't pour out more talk. Just llve the best you can in the world as it is. If this seems too dark a world, re- member Ecclesiastes hasn't the last word in the Bible!
