Hello there! Welcome again to my blog, and if this is your first time here, I’d like to say, “Welcome Home!”. For the past two weeks, I have written on the same subject, Understanding the Times. This will be my third and final post on this subject, hopefully. I did not think I would be writing a second post when I posted the first one two weeks ago. But here I am, on a third post.

Understanding the Times

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

Welcome, dear reader, to my blog 😊. Today, I am sharing on the vital subject of time. The verse of the Bible quoted above, arguably one of the most quoted verses or portions of the Bible, reveals a timeless piece of wisdom that speaks to our daily lives more than we care to admit. Now especially, in the middle of a worldwide pandemic that is transforming the way we live, work, think, behave and congregate, I find it most crucial to reflect on the importance of understanding the times as we wade and waddle through the murky waters of our new realities.
