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 2012-95, On the Street: What Is Your Favorite Book?

I was checking out of the library recently and they had a PR sign up saying, “What is your favorite book?”  They had a wed site which I assume I could go to and enter-to-win. 

What is my favorite book?  Asking me to decide on my favorite book is like asking which bite in a meal was my favorite.  I have a corner lined with books.  I have a house full of books.  I have a life saturated with books.  I have a couple of shelves of books waiting to be read.  I have a list of books I hope to find in the library or a used book sale.  I have a shelf of books I want to read again.

What is my favorite book?  The easy and obvious answer is the Bible.  That is one of those answers that is so simple it is not the answer they are asking for.  After that, what would I choose?  This is on the level of being asked which is your favorite child or having your wife ask you, “If you had it to do over again, would you marry me?”

So, what is my favorite book?  The answer is, “Yes!  Now get out of my light.  Can’t you see I am trying to read here?”
