September 2017 - Editor's Letter

“Everything changes and nothing stands still,” said Heraclitus, a fourth-century Greek philosopher. His thoughts aren’t original. King Solomon, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, penned similar words 500 years before in Ecclesiastes 3.

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance. . .”

The truth that change is constant is never more obvious, it seems, than in the fall. Children who were babes in their mothers’ arms just yesterday step into kindergarten classrooms and emerge four hours later older and more mature. Cocky, self-assured seniors regress into nervous freshman the moment they walk onto their new college campuses. On a grander scale, seasons come and go as the earth completes another orbit around the sun.

When all around us seems in a state of flux, I find great comfort in the permanence of God’s Kingdom.
