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 2013-124: On the Street: In the Sky

I remember a song I learned in elementary school.
“Spring is here,” said the bumble bee.
“How do you know?” said the old oak tree.
“I just saw a daffodil,
Dancing with a fairy on a windy hill.”
When I was back east during Holy Week I saw this in a way that we don’t notice in California.  Snow and four wheel drive when I arrived was trumped by daffodils pushing though the mulch to begin the dance of color. 

But wait.  What did I notice in the sky as I was locked in L.A. rush hour traffic?  Birds.  Flying in a fluid V.  Heading north.

Spring is here.  The cycles continue. 

Take some time to get away from the headlines and smell the roses, or whatever grows in your neighborhood.

I think God planned Easter to be in spring so that we would be reminded of the possibilities. 

He is risen.

  1. ..and winter is here. Enjoy your spring. One consolation is that our winters are really that bad.

    1. It is always hard to wrap my head around being on the opposite side of the globe.

      Grace and peace
