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 2011-209, Stopping to Smell the Roses

I am having a creation moment.  I am on vacation, staying in someone else’s home.  Since I am getting older I get up earlier.  I find that morning is a good time for worship and study. 

Today I am on the sun porch.  It is about 72 degrees.  The birds are singing.  The air is stirring.  The trees are greening.  It is a time to pause and marvel at what God has created.

Have you looked out the window lately.  You may only see the stucco of your neighbor’s house.  If so, you have my sympathy.  In that case go take a walk until you see a flower and stop to contemplate all the complexity of a simple plant.  A dandelion will do.  That is just one little corner of the universe.  God understands it all.

I find that reminder to be uplifting.  It puts my little issues in perspective.
