Pastor Granillo: Constant Change

Schoolwork has changed drastically since I was a kid. I realized this a few years ago when my oldest daughter started school, but it was only a little while back that I considered how much it had changed even between my time and my parents’ time.

I remember telling my mom about the new Apple IIe’s at our elementary school and how amazed she was at the idea of computers in public schools. Things had certainly changed since she was a child decades before.

We have all heard, many times, that the only constant is change.

“Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.” –Oscar Wilde

I am a Gen-Xer. I was part of that group that grew up on hairbands, Nike Pumps, Goonies, and MTV. What I remember most about my youth is so desperately trying to stay in touch with the pop-culture. Fashions and slangs seemed to change more often than my shoe size did; and surviving Jr. High and High School meant never missing the newest fad. I had to really be careful which “artist” I imitated.

We have rules in our home; I dare say most families do. Our children know that there are rules for using the computer, for watching TV, for how they speak to each other, for how they treat each other’s property, and for just about everything relational we can think of.

These rules are designed to keep the peace, teach respect, create a safe environment, and provide many other skills that will benefit our children through their lives.

Rules and laws are a part of life, but to what end?
