The search for meaning has always been part of the human condition. In our contemporary American culture we have more than ever before. Still, the longing for a deeply meaningful existence produces a quest that is perhaps more intense than ever. The ancient wisdom of Solomon might be able to help us.

Hebrews 11:1-6. As Christians we are instructed by the Bible to be in the world but not of the world. Let’s be honest, living that way is not an easy balancing act. Sometimes it seems like up is down and down is up. So how do we live right side up?
