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 2014-305: Headlines: Beware the Religious Zealots

Get ready for the riots.  The fundamentalists will be burning, beheading and rampaging soon.

The desecration is so terrible that I would not even try to make the picture appear on my website.  You thought Mohamed with a bomb on his head was bad.  You thought Buddha with earphones was evil.  Now we have a crucifix made of golden penises.  You can read the details at Harper’s Bazaar.  Drudge still had the picture on Saturday.

The headline calls it a “charm necklace.”  I guess romance has changed since I was a young man.

So lock your doors.  Huddle in fear.  Whoever Tom Ford is I am sure he is hiring body guards and going into hiding.  The Christians are coming. 

Or not.  I think most of us will be at church celebrating Advent.

Merry Christmas.

  1. I can't even imagine the torment that awaits some folks in eternity.

    1. I imagine it is just as hard to imagine in a negative way as eternal life will be in a positive way.

      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.
