This meeting brought up many ideas on the subject of ‘Change’. The eleven us us came up with – a different address, small coins, phases of the moon, diagnosis of a potential life-threatening disease, different gear in a car, wearing different cloths, a peel of bells, and change of heart.
My contribution was similar to some others –
A baby grows and changes slowly, weight and length increases. After a few months the gurgling sounds become distinct words and the words grow to become sentences. The change is slow and gradual.
A beautiful flower starts as a tiny bud which, with the influence of sun and rain grows into the colourful flower which we so love. Slow and constant change.
The phases of the moon are gradual; from new moon to full moon and back again; sure and slow.
But a change is coming which will be sudden and definite. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians Chapter 15: vs 51-52. We will all be changed, in a flash in the twinkling of an eye (what could be quicker than a blink)at the last trumpet.
No time then for gradual change. The change in our lives needs to be now before it is too late.
