"The times they are a changin"!

The famous Bob Dylan sang it, "The times they are a changin"!


I am increasingly discovering that I must be "a changin" too, or I shall soon be irrelevant.

Or maybe it is already too late.

My University place of employment has changed, and I have been reluctant to join in.  I perceive that some of the changes are for the worse, but that is not relevant - they have changed and so must I.

All my UA departmental colleagues are younger than I.  Things here change also, and as I lay in bed in the wee hours, it dawned on me that the whole Ph.D. paradigm was shifted by a younger colleague, and that has changed our entire approach to training Ph.D.s.  "The times they are a changin"! and so must I.

Not only are "The times a changin", they are changing at a faster rate than ever in history.

In the midst of this frantic changeable environment, it is comforting to know that G^d is UNchanging!  He is the same as He has been since He created time- and thus the potential for change.

"The times they are a changin"!  But G^d is the Same.  He who SPOKE the cosmos into existence, He never changes!!

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."  Hebrews 13:8.

And that, my friend, is an increasingly comforting thought!
