You have made the moon to mark the seasons; the sun knows its time for setting. (Psalms 104:19 NRSV)

Recently, we move our clocks back to Standard Time, which reminds me of a very stubborn man, a Kansas farmer, and an independent thinker if there ever was one. I don't know his name, but I do know that in the early 1940s, this Kansas farmer alleged that the worst thing that ever happened to the United States of America was the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt as President. And, he said, the worst thing Roosevelt ever did was to approve the order of Daylight Saving Time.

As you know, the order went through, but the old farmer never changed his clocks, so he was always one hour off the time observed by everyone else. That farmer lived and died by the old time. And his defense, he felt, was theological. He said, "I will not exchange God's time for Roosevelt's time!"


Lord, may I always live in your time and in your seasons, while I work to keep the distractions away in serving you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
