Unitarian Universalist Church of Palo Alto Sermons and Reflections
Is There Nothing New Under the Sun?

“All is vanity . . . all things are wearisome . . . there is nothing new under the sun.” Thousands of years ago, a man known only as The Preacher – Ecclesiastes, or Kohelet in his native Hebrew – wrote these words about his struggle to find spiritual meaning in life. How do we respond to his challenge? The sermon topic was requested by Weijia Cheng, who won “You Choose the Sermon” in the UUCPA Auction and is today’s guest Worship Associate.

Worship leader: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern

Worship Associate: Weijia Cheng

Music: Michael Peterson and Laura Rubinstein-Salzedo harpsichord and violin
