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 2013-173: Monday Pulpit: Great Preaching

The last three weeks the preaching has really been great.  How do I know?  Because I was doing it.  One of the lessons I have learned about preaching is that it needs to talk to me as much as any one else in the congregation.  Years ago I fell into the trap of preparing sermons aimed at certain people but it didn’t take long to realize that they were never there the Sunday I preached it.  The only person I could be sure would be present was me, thus I was the best target. 

So, preach it brother.

  1. The teacher always learns more than the students anyway.

    1. In this case, I would have to agree with you. In school, that isn't saying much.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
