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 2012-67, Glory!

I just rose from my booth and went to refill my coffee.  As I approached the urn I found myself mumbling, “What a beautiful day.”  Then I realized that would sound crazy to someone listening.  You see, to the casual observer, it was not a beautiful day.  It was just a day.  It was overcast and dingy outside.  The background music was some monotonous techno stuff.  The people around me were neither beautiful or repulsive.  I was not depressed or on cloud nine.  It was just a day.

Why did I mumble something like that?  Because at that moment I had grabbed hold of the reality of the grace of God in my life.  Life was not the sum of all physical perceptions but the result of an awareness of the eternal.  The Holy Spirit can do that for us.  He did for me.

So refill your coffee cup.  Straighten your collar.  Make sure you didn’t forget to zip your pants.  Check to see if you turned off the lights in your car.  And listen to the voice of God.

It is almost like God takes on the role of Dirty Harry and says to us, “Go ahead.  Make my day.”

I think it makes His day to make our day.
