We live. We die. Then there is this stuff called life in between. What is life all about? Using the book of Ecclesiastes, Nick asks, ” Is there more to life than ‘being happy’?” and “What gives life ‘meaning’?” Jesus came not to make people happy but to bring meaning to life.

But how do we answer tough questions? With Grace and Truth.
