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 2014-5 Should-a-Beens: Highway Revival Day

Wouldn’t it be nice if people who called themselves Christians would act like it?

How about a Highway Revival Day.  Why not have congress pass a resolution for a special day in which all people who claim to follow Jesus drive with patience and kindness.  Think about what that would involve.  No rushing to cut people off.  No passing on the right.  No tailgating to keep anyone from getting in front of me.  No glares.  No texting.  It goes without saying that there would be no one finger salutes.

Certain things would be allowed.  You can sing as you drive.  You can smile at other drivers as long as it is sincere.  None of those carnivore-looking-at-a-rabbit smiles allowed.  You could even pray for the people driving like pagans. 

How would that change our day and our culture?  Dramatically.  Maybe we could call for a series of days in which Christians apply their faith to one point of their lives:  Driving, Sunday shopping, entertainment, tipping in restaurants, etc.

Of course this would move us to the top of the potential terrorist list that the government seems to be compiling.  Relax.  If you are serious about your faith, you are already there.
