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 2015-76: Give Me a Break

Is sacrificing a virgin on your agenda?  Maybe you have just returned from the ceremony.

I am talking about the Rites of Spring that were common in the old pagan cultures.  The worship of the earth is making a comeback.  Gaia worship is cool.  Part of that transformation is spring break.  You know, when the kids get a week off school in the spring for no apparent reason.  Spring break is a return to the cultural values of the past.  You may not be aware of it.  Ask yourself, “Why do schools take a week off this time of year?”  Why do we need a break in spring?

The original purpose was to observe Holy Week.  Holy Week is the time from Palm Sunday to Easter.  It begins with the Christian celebration of Jesus entering Jerusalem and ends with the Christian celebration of His resurrection from the dead.  It is the most sacred week in Christianity.  What we call “Spring Break” used to be called “Easter Vacation”.  It had a purpose and a reason.

Now its only purpose is to estrange us from the original purpose.

If your goal is to remove the influence of the Christian faith you need to divorce people from the actions that reinforce and acknowledge that faith.  Thus you must move the week everyone has come to expect away from the truth the church was trying to emphasize

Different school districts break at different times.  Some may even make a mistake and let you off during Holy Week.  Nobody is perfect.

In case you don’t know, Holy Week this year starts on March 29.
