Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2011-40, New Book: Idols for Destruction

I have begun another book, Idols for Destruction, by Herbert Schlossberg.  This will be my third time through the book.  The theme comes from the book of Hosea:
(Hosea 8:4 ESV)  They made kings, but not through me. They set up princes, but I knew it not. With their silver and gold they made idols for their own destruction.
He is looking at the different areas of modern life where we as a culture have substituted false objects of worship.  He covers history, humanity, Mammon, nature, power and religion.

It will not be a fast read.  I will try to share some of the juices that he stirs up in my mind.
