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 2011-356, On the Street: Glide, Don’t Thump

I was at a stop sign three cars back.  A jogger was crossing at the intersection.  I was impressed at how he was bouncing as he ran.  He had an energy that I could only admire.  I thump when I run.  I don’t know if I could glide like he did but I know I am not serious enough about it to try.  True runners spring and bounce when they run. 

There are parallels to true worship.  Some people plod through the motions.  Others soar with eagles.  I find that I get more out of it when I put more into it.

Don’t be one of those who complain because they get nothing out of worship.  Put something into it.  Concentrate.  Engage your heart, mind, soul and strength.

Glide this Sunday, don’t thump.
