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 2014-126: The Blue Screen

I keep getting these messages on my computer that I need to restart in order to put the upgrades into effect.  I am asked “Now or later?”  The question keeps coming until I do something about it.  It never seems to be a good time.

How often does God send these types of messages.  God is not satisfied with your virus protection.  You are open to attack.  There has been a corruption in one of your files.  It needs to be fixed.  I have been there, have you?  How often have you heard irritating things about what is wrong with your life.  You don’t want to hear it.  You actually know it is true but you still don’t want to be reminded.  Yet the message keeps coming in different forms.

Sometimes the only way to get your computer to work correctly is to reboot.  The problem could be in the operating system, software or data.  It doesn’t matter.  Reboot.

It works on spiritual issues too.  You need to reinstall the values and principles that God designed you for.  You need to allow His bios and virus controls to reinstall everything the way it was intended to be run before the corruption set in.  I don’t understand how it works on my computer but I know it needs a fix.  I don’t know all that God is doing but the same applies.

If you are getting those messages, take a break and reboot.  Things will work better.

  1. It's often a case of reboot or be booted (i.e. kicked). God has a way of getting my attention when I'm being stubborn.

    1. It does not make it easier to take knowing I am not alone. Keep growing.

      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.
