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 2013-375: Ode to Old: “It’s Too Late, Baby!”

I am running out of time.

What got me going on this was a comment by my son as we were driving to church.  We touched on some plan or dream that he had expressed somewhere in the past and his response was, “I’ve got to get around to that.” 

It occurred to me that I don’t have much time left to get around to a lot of things.  When you get to a certain age you begin to look at the lead time in order to reach a goal.  There is a learning curve for everything and the time needed to develop the skills and contacts needed for success.  When you get to retirement age it is a little late to decide you are going to do something that takes twenty years to develop expertise. 

I have reached the age that I must admit that if I haven’t got around to it yet, I probably won’t.

That means to develop new goals.  Keep working on the strengths I have.  Plan with optimism but not foolishness. 

I have an eternity ahead but I have the feeling that the choices I will have then will dwarf my imagination on my best day. 

Something to regret.  Even more to anticipate.

Happy Eternity.
