Less important is what you and I think of DST. When we moved to Indiana back in 2002, most of the state did not spring forward or fall back. This was totally new to me and it created some interesting dynamics in our family. My parents live in the Central Time Zone; Erin's parents in the Eastern Time Zone. So for 1/2 the year good old Eastern Time Zone Indiana was on Eastern Standard Time and for the other 1/2 of the year on Central Standard Time. Our parents never knew what time it was at our house when they called. So regardless of my thoughts on the usefulness or uselessness of DST, I was glad when Indiana caught up with the rest of the country and switched several years ago.
Soon, it will be lighter later in the day. My children will be able to help me plant and harvest the crops later into the day (or will be able to play outside with the neighbor kids until later). Thankfully, God will meet with us as we worship whether it is 10:30 or 11:30, light or dark outside. Looking forward to the Lord's Day. See you Sunday at 10:30. I hope.
