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 2014-236: Ode to Old: The Indispensable?

I once asked my Sunday School class of young people what would happen to the church if everyone over 30 would suddenly disappear.  They seemed a little shook up over the prospect.

Maybe we should ask that about society as a whole.  We once had a generation who said, “Don’t trust anyone over thirty.”  Now I wonder how things would change if those generations were to disappear.  Churches would fall apart.  We would soon starve to death.  Most independent retailers would close down, only big box stores would be left. 

There are young people who are responsible.  There are older people who are shiftless.  People are individuals.  But if we did not have the solid performance of people over thirty life as we know it would come screeching to a halt.

The world does not belong to the young.  They are usually coasting on the investment and effort of those who are not longer flexible and frisky.
