That means change. Though the origin is uncertain, most feel change is a bit of a curse. The host complained this week that some in Washington just have not figured out that things are different than they once were. Bob Dylan saw it way back in the 1960’s:
Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There’s a battle outside and it is ragin’
It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’
I find myself struggling to keep up with the times, turning into the grumpy old man I swore I would never be.
And this week into this maelstrom came a little piece of scripture.
“For I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.
No matter how seemingly fundamental the change, it is not the most fundamental. No matter how much I feel like a man out of time, the things that matter most remain. The change cannot consume me for I cling to that which does not change. In a stormy sea of change, I can cope because I have an anchor.
We all need an anchor.
