A Time for Change

In Lent - Season of Change on March 1, 2017 at 8:42 am

This begins a series of postings for Lent on the topic of change.

It’s a big subject. Change, according to Greek philosopher Heraclitus, is the only constant of life. The French say “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose” (the more things change, the more they stay the same). So we start with a paradox: change is a constant and everything is the same.

We can think of change as we grow and change through life. Think of it as seasons, rotating through the year. Changes can be major or minuscule, quick or gradual, obvious or barely noticeable.

Other ways to look at change:

  • Technology forces us to adapt to new circumstances.
  • Snakes shed their skins.
  • People reinvent themselves and remodel their houses.

In this series, I will examine many different aspects of change using short stories, quotations, songs, essays, poems, and maybe even a few Bible verses. Let me know if you have any favorites you want me to include.
