6 Ways to the Meaning of Life

This year's youth camp is based on wisdom literature, and hence we will talk about the meaning of life. For the 6 sharing groups, we have each given them a quote representing a point of view about life.

Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards. - Soren Kierkegaard

If you are a Christian, you are not a citizen of this world trying to get to heaven; you are a citizen of heaven making your way through this world. - Vance Havner

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Have courage for the great sorrows of life, and patience for the small ones. And when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake. - Victor Hugo

Only a life lived for others is worth living. - Albert Einstein

Which best describes your view?
