A Vine, a Rock, and a Table: Stability of Heart in a World of Change
They say change is the only constant in life—and college is chock full of it. Classes change, grades change, professors change, majors change, friends change, roommates change…you change. Change, for better or worse, is unavoidable. Our ever-changing lives appear in stark contrast to a God who is constant, steadfast, and reliable in every way. And perhaps they also clash with the many images we find in Scripture that teach us about the importance of stability in the Christian life. Let’s dig into some of these images together and explore how we might cultivate what some monastic communities call “stability of heart”—even in the midst of busy lives full of change.
