Daylight Saving Time Thoughts 2012

A little over 4 years ago, this post on dst was published and I've updated it.

Spring Ahead
With Daylight Saving Time having come upon us, can Spring be too far behind? Of course these links only discuss time as chronos. I did a quick search on Google and found these links for you to share or meditate upon about Kairos

"A Brief Theology of Time: Resisting the Tyranny of Time" tells us "In contrast[to calendar time], the biblical treatment of time means that it should not be our master. For God has asserted His sovereignty over all time by initiating Creation and establishing patterns of years,weeks and days within the calendar. These ensure that, as made in God's image, we should rule time, rather than be subject to it." (11 para graph)
And In the Midst of Ordinary Time (kronos), extraordinary time(kairos) happens. This article mentions the song "Seasons of Love" which I have briefly posted before.

Through theology and philosophy, we discover the difference between kairos also the name of a scholarly journal [via]and chronos

The other aspect of time can be found in this inspirational video"The Dash"

Spring is near; Easter comes; time to measure your life.
And this year I would add one of the more shattering verses from the Bible--aside from John 3:16 & 17-- found in the Book of Revelations 10:6   Daylight Saving Time is puny in the scope of things to come.
