The Times They are A-Changin'
That was the refrain in a Bob Dylan song years ago. Here is a link to listen to it if you are not familiar with it. http://youtu.be/vCWdCKPtnYE
The song became an anthem of the protests in the 1960s. Many people today feel we are in a similar era of change with the Arab Spring, the financial crises in various countries, and the recession/depression in the U.S., among other things. As always, there are some who think we are in "the last days" - the days before Christ returns.
I don't know if we are in the last days or not. But we are definitely in our last days because we only have a certain number of days left to each of us. Perhaps the question we should ask ourselves is, "Are we making the most of our last days?"
Another aspect of changing times is deciding how much we ourselves will change. Do we decide to live a simpler lifestyle in times of economic distress? Do we try to give more to others who are in need? Do we read more Scripture? Pray more often?
Perhaps even more importantly, how do we resist the negative changes in society? Have you written to an advertiser who supports a TV program that you think is inappropriate? Have you written your congressional representatives or state legislators about particular bills or issues?
The times they are a-changin'. What are you doing with your last days?

I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
