This past week museum personnel dismantled our Apollo 11 exhibit. Really, there were not a lot of items. We displayed a souvenir edition of Life Magazine, the premier photo journal of the day. Additionally, several local citizens donated newspapers covering the mission. We also received several collectables made by the Bradford Exchange that they had marketed heavily at the time. We also looked on the internet to see if there were any items available that a local collector might be interested in purchasing for loan/gift to the museum. It turns out, most of the historical items a museum might be interested in were left at Tranquility Base.
Ecclesiastes has a great deal to say to every generation including mine. The author of Ecclesiastes does not name himself, but the description he gives of himself leaves us with only one logical conclusion: Solomon. The book opens by declaring itself to be the words of a particular person with a particular title. This Hebrew title is used of this one person only and it is only found in Ecclesiastes. It is used seven times in Ecclesiastes. The various versions of the Bible have translated it only two ways: The Teacher or The Preacher. Various dictionaries have agreed that it refers to the person who calls the religious assembly together and then addresses the assembly. In fact, this word is the title of the book. Ecclesiastes is the Greek translation of this Hebrew word.
