certain periods in history

Lately, I’ve been intrigued by books written about certain periods in history. 1066 is about the Norman invasion. 1215 is a book I enjoyed about the factors leading up to the signing of Magna Carta. The Reformation by Patrick Collinson doesn’t have a year in the title, but it certainly could have been called 1517 (the year the Reformation began).

What has fascinated me about these years and time periods is the multitude of factors that led to monumental change. We look back and see only one event or one person, but history is always a complex tapestry of interacting events and people.

I look at this year, 2006 – all the complexities, stresses, frustrations, decisions, interweaving stories and personalities, and wonder if it could be a year of destiny and significance as well. God only knows what I, or you, will remember when we look back on this year decades from now, but in the meantime it’s fun to ponder the possibilities…

“Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.” Ephesians 5:15-17
